The 1993 famine in Sudan occurred in 1993. It came amidst political unrest and civil war in the Sudan.

It was the subject of Pulitzer Prize-winning photography "The vulture and the little girl" taken by South African photojournalist Kevin Carter. Carter committed suicide shortly after being awarded the prize, possibly a result of trauma from witnessing the effects of the famine first-hand.[1]
