UN: 9.4 million children in Sudan lack clean drinking water access

UNICEF stated that approximately 9.4 million children in Sudan lack access to safe drinking water and are at risk of waterborne diseases.

The organization also pointed out that 3.4 million children under the age of five are at high risk of contracting diarrheal diseases and cholera.

Since the outbreak of the war in Sudan in mid-April last year, millions of children have been living in extremely difficult humanitarian conditions. Generally, millions of Sudanese people, in the states within the conflict zones, are living without access to basic necessities for survival.

Since mid-April, the army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) have been engaged in clashes that a series of ceasefires have failed to halt, resulting in more than 3,000 deaths, mostly civilians.

Over 4 million internally displaced and refugees inside and outside the country, according to the United Nations.
