This paper gives the actual scenario of the national and international activities during the famine disaster in Dar Fur Region, Sudan. The author gives the example of the Dar Fur Workshop to illustrate how international cooperation functions in such cases. He deals with the conflicting objectives of relief measures on the one hand and medium-term and long-term development objectives on the other. The author presents an insight into the work of foreign aid in the Sudan and the constraints with which it is confronted. He intentionally leaves judgement for the reader to make.
