To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the numbers of refugees fleeing Sudan into neighbouring countries; and what steps they are taking to support them.
To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made, in conjunction with (1) the World Food Programme and (2) the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, of the number of people displaced or affected by the conflict in Sudan and likely to be at risk of hunger or war crimes; and whether they intend to raise the situation in Sudan at the UN Security Council.
Displacement across international borders during this crisis continues to rise - Chad (20,000), Egypt (11,000), South Sudan (4,000 South Sudanese returnees registered), Ethiopia (4,000 estimated) and CAR (700 people) [last updated 27 April]. UNHCR has declared a Level 1 Emergency for Chad, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Sudan. Humanitarian needs in the region will increase with this mass displacement.
We will coordinate with the international humanitarian system (including INGOs, UN agencies, Civil Society Organisations) to support the UN response. The UK will support a well-coordinated and prioritised regional response.
