We do not currently support long-term development projects in northern areas of Abyei. The Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) to which the UK contributes has provided support to humanitarian aid projects which provide life saving support in the form of health, water and sanitation, nutrition and child protection projects in northern parts of Abyei.
