UNICEF says it lacks funds to support more than 100,000 South Sudanese refugee children in Sudan.
It says the money available to respond to the multiple and critical needs of children are running out this month.
In a statement, it says the needs of children in Sudan are huge and go far beyond the impact of the South Sudan crisis.
“There are already critical gaps today in the provision of lifesaving services including water and sanitation, hygiene-education, treatment of malnutrition, support to separated and unaccompanied children as well as immunization,” read the statement.
To date UNICEF in Sudan has received generous support from a wide range of donors. Unfortunately, the funding received covers only 16% of the 117 million USD required.”
More than 3.2 million children require humanitarian assistance.
