Photo of the week: Children in South Sudan

South Sudan, 2014: A boy in the Mingkaman camp for displaced people. Some 710,600 people – including an estimated 380,000 children – have been displaced internally since fighting broke out anew on 15 December 2013. UNICEF is reaching children with critical support in water, sanitation and hygiene, nutrition, health, education and protection, but needs remain urgent. Of the US$75.1 million UNICEF requires for emergency response between January and June 2014, 80 per cent remains unfunded.
