1.4 million children are in imminent risk of death as famine looms in four counties.
The threat of famine is looming in South Sudan, Somalia, north-east Nigeria and Yemen, where ongoing conflict and drought has led to severe food insecurity. Right now, 1.4 million children are in imminent risk of death.
UNICEF is scaling up its humanitarian response across all four counties to provide lifesaving therapeutic food to over 1 million children. UNICEF is restoring and equipping health facilities, developing medical and nutritional supply pipelines and providing clean water to children and their families.
