Angola’s President Joao Lourenco declared a state of emergency in January, but UNICEF said the response was stymied by lack of funding. Report said her plan of action for Angola had accounted for only 28 percent of the funding required.

Angola’s presidency did not respond to a request for comment.

The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in the southern province of Cunene on the border with Namibia has more than tripled, from about 250,000 in January to 850,000 in March, the report said.

About 500,000 children are at risk of inadequate food in the oil-producing country, which has been in an economic crisis since oil prices fell in 2014.

About 2,500 children under the age of five were treated for acute malnutrition between January and March in Lunda Norte, Huila, Cunene, Bie and Namibe provinces.
