UNICEF: 700,000 Sudanese Children Face Deadly Malnutrition Crisis Amid Ongoing Conflict

Geneva: UNICEF has sounded the alarm, stating that around 700,000 children in Sudan are facing life-threatening malnutrition, with tens of thousands at risk of death.

According to details, James Elder, spokesperson for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), said in a press conference in Geneva that in Sudan the prolonged conflict has left over 700,000 children vulnerable to the most severe form of malnutrition this year. Without improved access and additional support, UNICEF estimates that more than 300,000 of these children may not receive treatment, potentially leading to tens of thousands of fatalities

He stated that severe food shortages increase the likelihood of death for children under 10 years old who are suffering from malnutrition and diseases like cholera and malaria. James Elder further said that UNICEF is appealing for $840 million this year to assist more than 7.5 million children in Sudan.

It should be noted that nearly half of Sudan’s population, approximately 25 million people, require humanitarian aid and protection.
