Tearfund has been working in Sudan for more than 40 years, meeting needs of people traumatised and
impoverished by conflict.
Tearfund’s partners and Disaster Management Team (DMT) began responding to the crisis in Darfur 2004 by working in three areas of this region in western Sudan – and in four refugee camps in neighbouring Chad. DMT provides food aid for under-fives and pregnant and nursing mothers, while DMT health clubs teach children the importance of using clean water for drinking and cooking – and how to avoid diarrhoea.
DMT is present in two areas of south Darfur and one area in west Darfur, meeting basic needs through nutritional
support, safe water, latrines, hygiene education, school building, provision of safe play areas and initiatives to
restore the environment. Vulnerable people are also helped to grow food for immediate survival.
Currently Tearfund has two partner organisations in Sudan which are bringing transformation through disaster
response and leadership development.
