Dear Friend, 

Global humanitarian needs are at record levels with 362 million people in need. The first half of 2023 has seen humanitarian crises driven by conflict, climate shocks and food insecurity. Three global headwinds – geopolitical, economic and environmental – are expected to continue to shape the coming years with a profound impact on the lives of children, especially those already living in, or vulnerable to, humanitarian crises. With your generous support, UNICEF has been able to provide timely and effective technical, operational, and programmatic support to countries in all regions as part of its efforts to prepare and deliver life-saving protection and assistance to children and families. 

For example, in Sudan where recent conflict has forced thousands of families to flee their homes, UNICEF is providing desperately needed support including:  

  • Ensuring access to safe water.UNICEF is providing safe water through water trucking, water treatment and the digging and repairing of boreholes to help meet the needs of refugees, displaced families and host communities. 
  • Supporting Sudan’s children with health and nutrition services. UNICEF is supporting nutrition services for children suffering from severe acute malnutrition in health centers and mobile clinics as well as providing house-to-house nutrition screenings to help identify malnutrition cases early. In addition, UNICEF is providing health screening referrals, vaccinations, essential drugs and medical kits to ensure access to health care and services for displaced, host and refugee populations. 
  • Helping children to keep learning – safely. UNICEF is providing education services in Sudan and neighboring countries to ensure displaced and host community children and adolescents can access inclusive, quality education and learning opportunities in safe and protective environments.  
  • Providing psychosocial support for impacted children including child friendly spaces, case management and referral to specialized services. UNICEF also supports family tracing and reunification, as well as case management of unaccompanied and separated children. 

 

With your generous support UNICEF is able to remain committed to reaching vulnerable children and families with lifesaving support. 

 

In partnership, 

Alia
