The U.S. government through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) finalized an agreement with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on August 20 for $2.8 million to meet acute and new emergencies countrywide under the rapid response fund (RRF), to include the recent flooding throughout Sudan, according to the statement of the U.S embassy in Khartoum.

The flood response includes shelter, non-food items, drugs and medical supplies, water, sanitation and hygiene, and protection, in addition to support in the areas of logistics and transport. This is in addition to funding USAID provides to UNICEF, WHO and other INGOs, which also cover emergency humanitarian sectors (health, nutrition, water, sanitation, hygiene, child protection and shelter). Coordination, systems strengthening and capacity building will also be tapped to respond to any emergencies, including flood response.
