Famine has been declared in parts of South Sudan. That means children are already dying from malnutrition.
Famine is also looming in Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen, caused by different factors including drought and conflict.
We have a very small window to prevent millions of children from dying. And we cannot wait.
Altogether, 1.4 million severely malnourished children need lifesaving help.
We are doing everything we can to reach children, including in the hardest-to-reach places – providing therapeutic food to treat malnutrition, clean water to offset drought, vaccinations and malnutrition screening services to identify children in need as early as possible.
But the scale of this crisis is enormous and we need your help.
If you believe that no child should die from malnutrition and that even one death is too many, please help.
