Escalating Violence Threatens Children’s Lives 

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Sudan is threatening the lives of children all across the country. Escalating conflict is putting families in danger and forcing them from their homes in search of safety. 

Right now, more than 15.8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including more than 8.5 million children. Supplies of food, clean water and medicines are running low, while hospitals and schools remain closed or inaccessible.

Families are fleeing their homes in search of safety. Thousands are now displaced within their own country. Children and their families urgently need your help to survive. A donation from you can protect them from hunger and disease. 

Please donate today and send life-saving supplies to children in need.

Humanitarian Crisis in Sudan

As conflict continues to rage in Sudan, UNICEF is on the ground providing life-saving food to desperately hungry children, as well as access to clean water and health services.

The recent violence has only compounded the misery faced by millions of children in Sudan. Years of inflation and economic collapse have driven food prices sky-high, while climate change has caused crops to fail.

As a result, Sudan has one of the highest rates of child malnutrition in the world, with more than 3 million children suffering from acute malnutrition of which 610,000 are suffering from Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM). 

As the crisis continues, more and more children need our help. By donating today, you can provide life-saving supplies to the children who need it the most.  

Please make a life-saving donation today.
