IOM is committed to serve and assist all migrant and mobile populations including those forcibly displaced, irregular migrants and other vulnerable populations, as well as regular migrants including labour migrants.  In addition to directly reaching hundreds of thousands of beneficiaries through direct aid/assistance and migration services, IOM’s work also benefits individuals, organizations and institutions assisting those populations. IOM’s capacity building and policy development support to relevant ministries, departments and authorities of the Government of Sudan at the national, state and local levels, to NGOs and other Civil Society Organizations and to communities is an essential part of achieving its core objectives and building sustainable outcomes.
