UNICEF estimated that there are more than 17,000 child soldiers since 2013 in the war conflict Sudan.
“Since the first day of this conflict, children have been the ones most devastatingly affected by the violations,” said Leila Gharagozloo-Pakkala, UNICEF’s Regional Director for Eastern and Southern Africa.
“Now, as the fighting intensifies – and despite repeated pledges by all to end child recruitment – children are once again being targeted,” she added.
According to UNICEF that there are more than 3,000 of these children abducted, 1,130 sexually abused  and more 2,300 were killed or maimed in the conflict.  Though the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) and SPLA in Opposition have both signed agreements with the UN in order for both parties to stop the recruitment of children in their camps, but the problems did not stop there  Sudan have also another serious problem, economic crisis which causes hunger to the country and Sudanese children mostly suffered malnutrition, where in fact UNICEF had treated 184,000 children with severe cases of malnutrition since 2014.

“UNICEF’s concern is that with the prospect of increased hostilities and atrocities, the suffering that children have endured will have no end,” said Ms. Gharagozloo-Pakkala. “The children of South Sudan must no longer live under constant fear of hunger or conflict. They need sustained peace, care and support.”
