Women and girls on the move are some of the most vulnerable people, facing a range of humanitarian and protection issues. On their long and dangerous journeys, they are at risk of trafficking and sexual and gender-based violence.

The British Red Cross, alongside the Danish Red Cross, Sudanese Red Crescent Society and Ahfad University for Women in Sudan, is supporting women and girls affected by trafficking and sexual and gender-based violence in Kassala, Eastern Sudan.

Through vital practical and psychological support, we are helping these women to process their trauma, recover and be able to move forward with their lives. We are also increasing awareness in communities about trafficking and sexual and gender-based violence, which are sensitive topics in Sudan.

Through the programme women and girls along the migratory route in Eastern Sudan will have their dignity, rights, and protection needs met, and be empowered to make informed decisions and experience safer migration paths.
