Almost one million people have been displaced or affected by extreme flooding in South Sudan, according to a United Nations report.

Heavy flooding has devastated the east African nation since July, submerging entire communities and displacing hundreds of thousands of people.

The floods have limited people's access to healthcare facilities, nutrition centers and other basic necessities.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) also estimated that about 490,000 children were affected by the flooding.
