The chronic shortage of food supplies and water caused by drought, disease and conflicts in some of Africa are now driving a massive humanitarian crisis, leaving 1.3 million children at imminent risk of death from Severe Acute Malnutrition.
Severe Acute Malnutrition mostly occurs when children suffer from inadequate quantity and quality of food intake.
Acute malnutrition reduces resistance to disease and impairs a whole range of bodily functions. It can also be a direct cause of organ failure and death.
In 2017, UNICEF provided a humanitarian assistance to over 2.5 million children who suffer from Severe Acute Malnutrition mostly in parts of Africa. But our mission is far from over as now more than 1.3 million children are at imminent risk of death from severe acute malnutrition (SAM) due to famine in South Sudan and the risk of famine in north-east Nigeria, Somalia and Ethiopia.
As UNICEF races against time to give children a chance to survive, the organization faces a financial gap.
