Child Rights/Protection 

Children in South Sudan have suffered from serious breaches of their rights since 2013. Suffering brought on by violence, enlistment in the armed forces and by armed groups, hunger, family separation, and attacks on schools and hospitals, restricts access to healthcare, education, and nutrition for both boys and girls, according to numerous reports.
