We need your help to save lives and protect children.

Sudan faces a humanitarian crisis, with more than 5.5 million people in need of assistance, of which 2.6 million are children.
 
Sudan faces two major overlapping humanitarian challenges: one triggered by the impact of conflict leading to large-scale population displacement, and another due to climatic and socio-cultural conditions leading to high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition.
 
While the impact of the conflict has been the main driver of humanitarian needs in Sudan, poverty, floods, drought and environmental degradation have also significantly affected the livelihoods of vulnerable people, particularly children.

We urgently need your help to protect vulnerable children in Sudan.

Give to Childhood Rescue to protect vulnerable children in dangerous places like Sudan.

Girls forced to marry, some as young as 10 years old

<br>Girls forced to marry, some as young as 10 years old

Gender inequality and harmful cultural norms have resulted in 34% of girls in Sudan being married before they are 18; 12% before they are 15.
 
Early marriage violates girls’ rights to health, education and future opportunities. It exposes girls to devastating violence and traps them in a cycle of poverty.

Once married, girls face intense social pressure to prove their fertility. Often married to older husbands, it can be extremely difficult for girls to assert their wishes, particularly when it comes to negotiating safe sexual practices and the use of family planning methods.

Together, with your support we can continue to partner with communities to break down ingrained beliefs and unequal systems that force women and girls into early marriage.

Please help children in countries like Sudan survive, recover and build a future.

Helping improve alarming rates of malnutrition in children

The children of Sudan are suffering from alarming rates of malnutrition. 2.9 million children are in need of nutrition assistance.

Each year, around the world, malnutrition claims the lives of 3 million children under the age of five.

Together with your support, we can continue to provide critical and life-saving treatment at nutrition centres for these children.

To ensure that everyone in need is reached, World Vision is working alongside community volunteers who have been trained to detect early signs of malnutrition and other deficiencies in children, and pregnant and lactating women. This is critical in ensuring they receive the necessary treatment early.


We ensure all resources entrusted to us are used effectively to bring maximum impact.
