About five million Sudanese face the specter of hunger in the coming months in different parts of the war-torn country, according to warnings from the United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator Martin Griffiths.

In a memorandum to the UN Security Council, seen by Reuters, Griffiths pointed to catastrophic levels of hunger resulting from the effects of the raging conflict in the country, whether on its livelihood or on its agricultural production, as well as the destruction of its basic infrastructure.

The UN official also noted the obstruction of trade flows in Sudan, the insane rise in prices, and the obstruction of the arrival of aid, as well as large waves of displacement.

Griffiths said in the memo: “Without urgent humanitarian aid and access to basic goods, about five million Sudanese will slide into a catastrophic level of food insecurity in many parts of Sudan during the coming months.”
