Norway Responds to UN Aid Appeal for Sudan

Norway will be increasing its funding to Sudan by 30 million Norwegian kroner (USD5 million) in response to a new U.N. aid appeal for the conflict-afflicted country.

The additional funds will be used to buy and deliver emergency relief supplies for the country’s most vulnerable population groups, according to a news release from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In the same news release, Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Jonas Gahr Store affirmed that Sudan is one of Norway’s highest priorities.
