Worst flood in 100 years, at least 99 dead. 400,000 people had to flee because their houses are under water. The capital Khartoum is particularly affected.

According to the UN, at least 37,000 houses have been completely destroyed and at least 39,000 damaged. 2,700 health facilities are affected.

An end to the flood is not yet in sight. Further rainfall is also predicted for September.

Some places cannot be reached and have neither electricity nor clean drinking water.

The aid organizations are overwhelmed by the many people who need help.

In the region of Darfur, hundreds of thousands of people still live in camps because of the civil war. 2 camps are now flooded.

After 17 years of civil war, a peace treaty was signed by the transitional government and the Revolutionary Front, an alliance of several rebel groups, at the end of August 2020.
