As the conflict enters its third week, UN Agencies are warning of a full-scale displacement emergency – with around 4,000-5,000 refugees arriving in Sudan every day.
In addition to the threat of COVID-19 in crowded camps, we are particularly alarmed by malnutrition rates, with acute malnutrition in Tigray increasing by one third between 2019 and 2020. ⠀
UNICEF is on the ground, working to reach children with safe water, medical supplies, nutrition, and psychological support. ⠀
While we protect children, we’re calling for all parties to the conflict to abide by their obligations under international law to protect children and humanitarian workers too.⠀
