Sudan is one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world for young people according to the UN Children's Fund, UNICEF.

The agency says that as many as 65% of those people who have fled their homes or become refugees are under the age of 18.

So far this year, almost 270,000 people have become newly displaced in the Darfur region alone.

Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF's Representative in Sudan, told Nicki Chadwick that, as is so often the case, children are the most vulnerable victims of conflict and displacement.
