Help protect children in Sudan
Armed violence in Sudan is putting children at risk.
More than 100 days of continued conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has created a humanitarian crisis in Sudan. Half of Sudan’s population – more than 24.7 million people, almost 14 million of whom are children – are in need of urgent assistance.
Thousands of children have been killed, injured and displaced from home, and the conflict is disrupting critical services on which families depend. Many families are trapped in the crossfire, and over 3 million people have fled their homes out of fear for their lives.
The situation for children in Sudan was already very fragile. Over 600,000 children are estimated to be severely malnourished. Life-saving treatment and other health services are now being disrupted. The routine immunization rate has fallen rapidly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic with one in six children completely unprotected.
Most schools have closed, depriving children of a sense of normality and safety, as well as worsening the existing learning crisis.
Since the conflict began, UNICEF has reached over 3 million children and women with health supplies, 1.7 million children with malnutrition screening, and 100,000 children and caregivers with protection support through over 400 safe spaces established across Sudan.
With your kind support, we can help more children and families affected by this conflict.
Please donate to help protect children in Sudan.
How will my donation help children?
Our priorities are the safe passage and protection of children, families and our staff across Sudan.
We’re expanding our existing work to support children without parents or guardians and displaced families. We’re securing and mobilising life-saving supplies, and we’re helping treat injuries and getting emergency education services, clean water and mental health support to children.
We are committed to staying to support the children of Sudan for as long as they need us. Please help us to reach children and families affected by this devastating conflict.

For the first 6 months, your monthly gift will support children affected by the conflict in Sudan. After that, your donations will help keep children safe and healthy worldwide. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed what’s needed for the appeal, we will direct any excess funds to support our work to help keep children safe and healthy around the world.
Donating Items and Volunteering
We’re currently not accepting any items for the emergency appeal. These kind offers are really appreciated, but any donated items will need to be sorted, cleaned and transported which could impact our response, so please consider making a monetary donation instead to our emergency appeals.
We’re not currently sending any volunteers to Sudan.
The best way you can help support our emergency work in Sudan is to donate money to the appeal. Please give what you can, your donations will help us to protect children in Sudan.
