Abstract

The study presented here reviews activities of NGOs in Sudan. That was a disputable issue that resulted in a mass expulsion of many in 2009. However¸ there were precedents of such expulsions in previous and following years. The paper discusses humanitarian work in Sudan, positive and negative sides. Reasons are that part of the hypothetical framework here is that their activities in the country are indispensible. The country still faces many humanitarian suffering in most of its regions and international aid is direly required. Thus, it is essential to rectify their modus operandi to be consistent with the culture of the country's people. The conclusions of the paper emphasize that such their humanitarian relief facilities are inadequate and that educational efforts are more needed to support a build-up of human capital. Malnutrition, inadequate homes and sanitation facilities are also common issues that should be within their aid targets. Those are axial factors that should be focused upon specially with escalating economic distress and secession of the Southern Sudan.
