  • The brutal war in Sudan is creating disastrous conditions for a catastrophic loss of children’s lives, putting at risk the health and well-being of Sudan’s 24 million children, with serious implications for the wider region. 18 million children remain out of school. Famine is looking increasingly likely, especially in hotspots of Darfur, Khartoum, Kordofan. We must do everything we can to prevent this.
  • In 2023, UNICEF and partners reached 6.4 million people with health supplies, 5.9 million people with safe drinking water, 5.4 million children with malnutrition screening – 313,400 received life-saving treatment, over 870,000 children and caregivers with psychosocial counselling, learning, and protection support, and 300,000 children and families with cash, information and services to preserve health and resilience. This report describes 2024 results, using a zero baseline.
  • UNICEF appeals for US$840 million in 2024 to sustain and scale lifesaving and resilience services for 7.6 million of the most vulnerable children.
