UN Raises Alarm Over Malnutrition Crisis in Sudan

by Ella

The United Nations’ World Food Programme (WFP) issued a stark warning about the worsening malnutrition crisis in Sudan, revealing that desperation has driven some Sudanese to resort to eating grass and tree leaves to survive. Child malnutrition levels have reached alarming heights, prompting urgent action from humanitarian organizations.

In response to the dire situation, the WFP is intensifying its efforts to provide emergency food and nutrition assistance across Sudan. The organization emphasized the urgent need to address the escalating crisis and mobilize resources to ensure food supplies reach those most in need.


The severity of child malnutrition in Sudan has raised concerns among international humanitarian agencies, with 19 organizations, including 12 UN agencies, issuing warnings about the potential for famine if aid delivery is obstructed by ongoing conflict.


Sudan has been grappling with a devastating conflict between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the Rapid Support Forces, resulting in widespread displacement, loss of life, and humanitarian suffering. Efforts to deliver aid and establish a ceasefire have been hindered by ongoing hostilities, exacerbating the humanitarian crisis.


Humanitarian agencies are calling on all parties involved in the conflict to prioritize the protection of civilians, facilitate unrestricted access for aid organizations, and commit to a nationwide ceasefire to prevent further loss of life and alleviate the suffering of the Sudanese people.
