Addressing humanitarian needs of children and their communities in the eastern states (20-RR-CEF-006)

Project overview

UNICEF in Sudan is dedicated to supporting children and adolescents across the country by providing humanitarian and development assistance to children – as well as their families and communities – across health and nutrition; water, sanitation and hygiene; child protection; social protection; education; as well as data and evidence generation. Together with its partners, UNICEF supports the Government of Sudan and works with national capacities, strengthening systems, public policies and national legislations that allow for reform and pave the way for longer term development and well-being. Humanitarian crises - including protracted conflict and displacement, natural disasters, epidemics, emergency-level malnutrition and food insecurity - remain a major challenge. In 2020, a total of 4.65 million children need humanitarian assistance. Since 2011, children in the armed-conflict zones of Jebel Marra, Blue Nile and the Nuba Mountains have been denied access to basic services, such as education, polio and measles vaccinations, nutrition services, and water and sanitation facilities and child protection. This response will focus on the most vulnerable populations in need in the central and eastern states, as well as South Darfur, South Kordofan and West Darfur. UNICEF targets priority one, two and three localities as identified in the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP). This project aims to address the humanitarian needs of children and their communities in the eastern states of Sudan, through engagements in the following sectors: WASH (targeting 263,600 host communities), Protection - Child Protection (targeting 95,722 other affected persons), Education (targeting 107,290 IDPs, returnees and host communities), Health (targeting 197,540 refugees and other affected persons) and Nutrition (targeting 210,000 refugees and other affected persons).
