Our work in Sudan

In 2006, Handicap International's Emergency Response Department deployed a team in the south of the country to develop its activities in aid of displaced persons and refugees returning to their region of origin.

Over the period from April to November 2006, almost 3,000 people were repatriated. A transit camp was also built to provide shelter for 500 families each week in satisfactory conditions.

In 2007, Handicap International continued and expanded its activities in southern Sudan, including the repatriation of refugees in the Bor (Jonglei) region in partnership with the HCR, and the implementation of a Mine Risk Education programme in the Malakal (Upper Nile) region. These operations have now been completed.

Since 2009, Handicap international has widened its interventions in Jonglei State to cover not only case management of victims of violence and other accidents, but also to support the government in strengthening the capacity of the state health care system. We now work in two counties (Bor south and Twic East) and plans are at an advanced stage to expand our services into Duk County in 2010.
