Many Sudanese people have fled their homeland to join the growing number of Sudanese people living in other countries.

Through the hard work of humanitarian organisations, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the International Red Cross and the various host states of Sudanese refugees including Australia, Canada and Germany, the resettlement of Sudanese people in safe third countries has been made possible. The needs of the Sudanese community when they arrive and settle in these nations is the focus of research presented on this page.


Sudanese Australian artist; Mahmoud Zein Elabdin (website)

Mahmoud Zein Elabdin left Khartoum fearing that his art would cause him harm. He came to Australia as a refugee. Elabdin now lives in Australia where he produces works for exhibition. Having returned to Sudan to visit, Elabin succinctly expresses a common feeling amongst those from the Diaspora who are fortunate enough to have returned to Sudan. He says, "I have two homes now and I miss one when I am in the other."
