According To Africa News, Many of the children who fled the ongoing fight in Sudan are now suffering from malnutrition. About 500 children have died from hunger in Sudan — including two dozen babies in a government-run orphanage in the capital of Khartoum — since fighting erupted.

Aid workers at the camp complained about the lack of medications and called for urgent medical assistance.

“Any malnutrition patient who comes to us should receive proper medications, and we don’t have any medications here,”

Said volunteer doctor, Hashem Moussa.

Sudan was plunged into chaos in April when simmering tensions between the military, led by Abdel Fattah Burhan, and the RSF, commanded by Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo, exploded into open fighting in the capital, Khartoum, and elsewhere. More than 3.4 million people were forced to flee their homes to safer areas inside Sudan, according to the United Nations’ migration agency. Over a million crossed into neighboring countries, including Egypt, Chad, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Central African Republic, according to the United Nations’ migration agency.
