USAID urges immediate ceasefire in Sudan amid humanitarian crisis

In Washington, USAID Administrator Samantha Power has urged immediate negotiations for a ceasefire between Sudanese general al-Burhan’s militia and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF).

Addressing the press, Power emphasized the urgent need to ensure unimpeded humanitarian access to millions facing severe hunger in Sudan.

She described the crisis as “man-made”, attributing it to ongoing conflict and the deliberate obstruction of aid efforts by both factions.

Despite challenges, USAID continues to provide essential aid, including food, healthcare, and malnutrition treatment, and has allocated over $1.4 billion in humanitarian assistance since October 2022.

Power reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to supporting Sudanese civilians and called for sustained efforts to deliver critical aid across conflict zones.
