Sudan Requires Assistance—Why is Global Response Lacking Once More?

The recent conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has drawn intense global attention, with over 1,200 Israelis killed, more than 200 taken hostage, and thousands of Palestinians dead.

Remarkably, the influx of foreign journalists, including 824 from the U.S., exceeds the number of war correspondents during World War II, despite fewer journalists covering that vast conflict.

Yet, the crisis in Gaza, though important, is not the world’s most pressing humanitarian concern. That distinction likely falls on the dire situation in Sudan, where war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity are rampant.

Since April 2023, nearly 8 million Sudanese have been forcibly displaced, nearly four times the population of Gaza—shockingly, 18 million Sudanese face severe hunger in the middle of widespread suffering.

The Sudanese Armed Forces and paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have committed atrocities reminiscent of the Janjaweed militias responsible for the Darfur genocide. Despite this, Sudan receives minimal media coverage. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, has criticized the silence surrounding Sudan’s plight.

Several factors contribute to this lack of attention. Firstly, it’s easier for journalists to operate in Israel than in Sudan. Additionally, media coverage often caters to audience interests, and there’s less engagement with Sudan-related issues than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The narrative surrounding Sudan differs from that of Israel, making it less resonant with specific groups. The conflict’s impact on neighboring countries like Chad garners little concern.

However, some media outlets prioritize shedding light on overlooked stories, believing it’s part of their mission. If even a fraction of the resources devoted to Israel and Gaza were redirected to Sudan, it could increase awareness of the crisis.

The commemoration of the Rwanda genocide serves as a reminder of the dangers of neglecting such atrocities. Learning from past mistakes is crucial to ensuring that crises like Sudan’s receive the attention they deserve.
