The Fate of South Sudan

More than 50,000 children in South Sudan face death from disease and hunger, the United Nations has warned. War has already killed thousands and forced more than 1.5 million people from their homes, and aid agencies warn of the risk of famine should fighting continue.

"Cholera has broken out, malaria is rampant and many children are malnourished. Millions of people need emergency healthcare, food, clean water, proper sanitation and shelter to make it through the year."   UN aid chief for South Sudan Toby Lanzer said.
