UNICEF Warns 100,000 Sudanese Child Refugees in Chad Face New Dangers

HeadlineJun 27, 2023

The commander of Sudan’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces has announced a 48-hour unilateral ceasefire for the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha. The declaration came as the United Nations Children’s Fund warned more than 100,000 children fleeing violence in Sudan face new dangers amid a desperate situation in refugee camps in neighboring Chad. UNICEF warned essential services such as water, shelter, health and education remain extremely limited for the more than 140,000 Sudanese refugees and 34,000 Chadian returnees who’ve crossed the border since fighting erupted in April between rival factions of Sudan’s military junta. Many of the refugees are injured or lost loved ones as they fled rapidly rising levels of violence in Sudan.
