HELP CHILDREN AFFECTED BY THE CONFLICT IN SUDAN
Escalating violence in Sudan is putting millions of children and their families at risk.
Due to the ongoing conflict, many children have been killed and injured and are trapped in the crossfire, and many more are being forced to leave their homes and seek shelter in neighbouring countries. The fighting worsens the already dire situation in Sudan. Around 16 million people, including 8.5 million children, required humanitarian assistance even before the conflict erupted.
Sudan has one of the highest rates of childhood malnutrition in the world. The fighting has disrupted critical, life-saving care for an estimated 50,000 children experiencing severe malnutrition.
The majority of schools are closed, depriving children of a safe environment against physical and mental threats and deepening the existing learning crisis.
There are shortages of food, water, medicine and other essential supplies. Violence, hunger and malnutrition threaten children and their families.
Help us provide urgent life-saving support to children in Sudan.
HOW IS UNICEF RESPONDING TO THE CONFLICT IN SUDAN?
With the help of our donors and partners, UNICEF aims to provide critical healthcare, nutrition, and water and sanitation, and education services in Sudan.
We are calling for a ceasefire so that humanitarian workers can safely provide urgent health, nutrition, protection and education services to children and families affected by the crisis.
We are also working to ensure safe passage for children and their families trapped in conflict areas across the country.
