Sudan is in the midst of a humanitarian crisis

Sudan is in the midst of a humanitarian crisis

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. Every $1 you give towards the CHILDREN IN CRISIS fund can provide $5 worth of aid, thanks to our partnerships across the United Nations.

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, pregnant and lactating women. This is critical in ensuring they receive the necessary treatment early.

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

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 violence throughout their lives 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.
You can protect and nurture vulnerable children in Sudan and other dangerous places.
