Avpai Agongi with her 3 year old son Akur Akuer lie on a bed in the Action Against Hunger Aweil Stabilization Centre, South Sudan, her son is being treated for malnutrition. The first three months of 2015 are critical for South Sudan’s conflict-affected population. The world’s youngest nation narrowly avoided famine in 2014 but as the dry season sets in an upscale in violence is expected, bringing with it more mass displacement.
Without urgent humanitarian assistance at scale, 2.5 million people are expected to face a food crisis / emergency between now and March. Food stocks are depleted, markets can’t function properly. What is available costs more because of demand, but people aren’t earning because many have had to flee their land/livestock etc with little to no money.
Famine remains a serious threat. Action Against Hunger is a leading international organisation that specialises in treating the most deadly form of malnutrition in young children. The charity is trying to save as many young lives as possible. We’ll be documenting life in these camps, the food crisis people are facing, and the organisation’s fight to stop children dying.
