Save the Children are set to launch a worldwide appeal to help and protect the vulnerable children in troubled states of South Sudan, as the country is on the brink of a famine.
Chief executive of the charity Justin Forsyth said:
When I was there in February, I met children separated from their parents by the fighting, children injured in the crossfire and mothers forced to give birth in the bush.
If the planting season is missed, there will be no food, come the harvest in September.
The people of South Sudan need our help now.
