Famine Crisis

Famine Crisis

Nearly 1.4 million children are at imminent risk of death from severe acute malnutrition.

This is a famine crisis.

In South Sudan, a country reeling from conflict, poverty and insecurity, famine has just recently been declared in the north central part of the country. If we don’t act now, Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen won’t be far behind.

UNICEF is working tirelessly to respond to an emergency of staggering scale.
