UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, Support

The recent escalation in the armed conflict in Sudan threatens the lives and well-being of the country’s 21 million children. The intensification of the armed conflict poses severe human costs, causing a growing number of civilian and children casualties, interrupting livelihoods, damaging critical civilian infrastructure, and displacing over 1.4 million people within Sudan and an additional 474,390 people to neighbouring countries. We have received credible reports that 335 children have been killed, and 1,940 children were injured since the beginning of the fighting on April 15.

Humanitarian needs are rapidly multiplying both inside Sudan and in refugee-hosting countries. 13.6 million children inside Sudan require urgent humanitarian assistance. The most pressing needs are emergency medical services and supplies, vaccines, nutrition services for 621,000 children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM), safe drinking water and ensuring protection of children on the move and in the midst of the fighting. 

In response, UNICEF is staying and delivering and has already mobilised organisation-wide support. However, the deteriorating situation and complex operating environment require strengthened capacity and sustained efforts to expand our presence and our work in parts of the country that can be safely accessed. It also calls for strengthened humanitarian leadership, and for continued scaling up of our humanitarian action. UNICEF also coordinates with 

refugee-hosting countries to prepare and respond to the humanitarian needs emerging from population movements.
