Hopes among more than three million people in Sudan were raised with the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord, created to end Africa 's longest-running conflict. Driven from their homes and communities by more than two decades of war there, this massive wave of internally displaced people returning to their home areas raises many challenges in the process. And an urgent need for support.

A grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Lutheran World Relief (LWR) will directly and indirectly benefit an estimated 40,000 people in Sudan, many of whom have little besides the clothes they are wearing.
