Sudan to Pass New Law for Humanitarian Action



Towards efforts to Sudanize humanitarian action, the Sudanese government will issue a new law governing humanitarian law across the country, as it exerts efforts to allow national organizations to play a bigger role in providing humanitarian aid.

Speaking in El Obeid North Darfur on Sunday at the conclusion of a meeting of state commissions to discuss legislations regarding humanitarian and volunteer work Vice President Hasabo Mohammad Abdulrahman said, “We want to nationalize Humanitarian and volunteer work with new goals for the next year.”

In March 2009 President Al Bashir announced the Sudanization of voluntary work. Then in 2013, Sudan had expelled 16 foreign organizations following the issuance of the ICC case.

According to a 2014 report, the number of foreign organizations across the country had reached 191.
