500 Children Killed in Sudan Conflict; 30,000 Lose Access to Nutrition Centers After NGO Ends Services

HeadlineAug 23, 2023

In Sudan, fighting between military and paramilitary forces over control of a key army base in the capital Khartoum continued for a third day Tuesday. Thousands have been killed and millions displaced since violence broke out more than four months ago.

This comes as Save the Children says some 500 children, including two dozen babies who were under the care of a government-run orphanage in Khartoum, have died of hunger. The group also reported about 30,000 children no longer have access to medical treatment for malnutrition and other illnesses after the aid group was forced to shut down dozens of its nutrition centers due to the conflict in Sudan.
