Over 10 million children in Sudan have been repeatedly exposed to deadly violence over the past year of war.

Nearly 4 million children are malnourished, and thousands of others risk death from disease as the country's health system has all but collapsed. Not a single child has been able to go to school over the past year. Your donation to the Children's Emergency Fund helps our teams respond quickly to children living in crisis in Sudan and around the world.

Our Response to the Crisis Sudan

Save the Children has worked in Sudan since 1983. In 2022, Save the Children directly reached 2.1 million people, including 1.5 million children, with programming focused on child protection, access to quality education, health and nutrition support and responding to emergencies. 

We provide medical supplies, including medicines for children under five years old and emergency trauma kits for the life-saving treatment of injuries 

We run mobile health clinics in the camps for displaced people and also provide nutrition supplements for malnourished children.

We offer games and activities for children, such as dancing, drawing and sports to overcome their negative experiences.
