United States Assistance for Sudanese Refugees in Chad

The United States is pleased to announce a contribution of $17.85 million to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to continue to provide assistance and protection for over 200,000 Sudanese who have sought refuge in Chad as a result of the continuing conflict and deprivation in Darfur. 

 

The United States has provided nearly $100 million towards appeals from UNHCR, the World Food Program, and partner international and non-governmental organizations to support the Sudanese refugees in Chad since the beginning of the crisis in 2003.  The humanitarian situation on both sides of the border remains fragile and additional donor support for the international relief effort is needed.  The United States calls on other donors to respond with similar generosity.
