Women unload emergency food in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Women unload emergency food aid in Akobo, South Sudan, on October 6, 2021.
Like several locations around the troubled country, the double whammy of fighting and flooding has created increased hunger in South Sudan.
The 50 pound bags of sorghum, provided by the United Nations' World Food Program, will be divided up and distributed locally by Catholic Relief Services, a U.S.-based organization.
Just getting the food in by river barge was a lengthy and dangerous process. On October 2, as it was traveling in a convoy of boats carrying relief supplies, it was fired upon and two people were wounded. They were hospitalized after the boat arrived in Akobo, which is near the Ethiopian border.
