Summary: 

As part of WFP’s emergency operation in South Sudan, children are being targeted under a blanket supplementary feeding programme. An estimated 235,000 children under the age of five will require treatment for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) this year; twice as many as last year. So far, due to the challenging conditions, the humanitarian community has only been able to reach about 10 per cent of these children with the treatment they need.
