South Sudan is facing multiple humanitarian crises. More than 8.3 million people, including 4.5 million children, need multi-sectoral humanitarian assistance. In 2021, UNICEF and partners aim to reach more than 3.7 million children affected by multiple shocks, including conflict, disease outbreaks – including COVID-19 – drought and flooding with services designed to improve their physical and mental health, nutrition, safety and learning.
