Catholic Relief Services is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States.

CRS’ relief and development work is accomplished through programs of emergency response, HIV, health, agriculture, education, microfinance and peacebuilding.
CRSSudan is as dynamic and diverse as the needs of the people we serve. Since 1978, CRSSudan has been assisting the people of Sudan across the emergency, recovery, and development spectrum. In recent years, CRS Sudan has been undergoing a transformation as new opportunities for resiliency programming emerges and the environment opens for deeper involvement of humanitarian organizations. CRSSudan's flagship programs, DFID-funded Taadoud project (2014-2022)and USAID/FFP-funded RISING project (2019-2021), are examples of this shift. Implemented in five states in Darfur, these integrated livelihoods, nutrition and natural resource management programs are implemented in consortium with INGO, national NGO, university and private sector partners. The BMZ-funded RAID program is another example of CRSSudan's integrated resiliency programming. Sudan remains one of the world's most protracted humanitarian crisis.In this context, CRS continues to provide emergency assistance throughout Sudan, with core funding from WFP, USAID/BHA, and UNICEF. Key sectoral areas for CRSSudan include food security, livelihoods (on-farm, off-farm and non-farm), nutrition, health, peacebuilding and natural resource management. CRSSudan has an expanding portfolio of programs crossing the emergency response and resiliency spectrum. Currently CRSSudan oversees programming across five Darfur states and the Red Sea.
