Goats help families fight hunger in South SudanAdd to Lightbox Download
Nyakhan Lual and Nyamiri Kulang, both 12, hold two of their families' goats on an isolated farm along the Akobo River in South Sudan, near the country's border with Ethiopia.
In response to unprecedented flooding and fighting in the area, DanChurchAid, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping families with food and livelihood projects aimed at lowering vulnerability and increasing food security at a time when the arrival of many newly displaced families increased competition in the community over scarce food resources. Many families, including those of these two girls, received goats as part of the program, which was carried out by Nile Hope, a South Sudanese NGO.
