Nearly 1 million children under age 5 in South Sudan will require treatment for acute malnutrition in 2014, and without immediate intervention, it is estimated that 50,000 children could die from malnutrition by the end of the year. Further, one in every three people in the country faces dangerous levels of food insecurity, with many not knowing when and how they will secure their next meal.

Resurgent conflict has raised pre-existent emergency levels of undernutrition among children to grave heights, and famine now looms. If more is not done, we are in danger of witnessing a repetition of the crises that emerged in Somalia and the Horn of Africa three years ago, when early warnings of extreme hunger and escalating malnutrition went largely unheeded until official famine levels were announced. South Sudan’s children are already dying. They cannot wait for such an announcement.
