Report

Khartoum, 18 April 2014 --- Today in Khartoum airport, UNICEF received 89 tons of life-saving supplies to support the humanitarian response to children affected by emergencies in various hot spots throughout Sudan.

In some cases, children account for 70 per cent or more of the newly displaced in Darfur and of the South Sudanese seeking refuge in several states throughout the country.
