South Sudan risks losing an entire generation of children.
The country is being devastated by civil war, poverty, and climate shock. This means hunger, disease, trafficking and the loss of schooling — jeopardizing the lives and futures of 5.8 million kids.
Over 270,000 children are suffering from severe acute malnutrition. In the northern central part of the country, famine has been declared. Malaria and cholera are growing threats.
An estimated 16,000 children have been recruited by armed groups. Killings, kidnappings and sexual violence endanger many others.
Now 3.4 million people have been forced to flee their homes. More than 1.2 million children can't go to school.
