Goats help families fight hunger in South SudanAdd to Lightbox Download
Eight-year old Country Gatwech holds one of his family's goats on an isolated farm along the Akobo River near South Sudan'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 this boy's family, received goats as part of the program, which was carried out by Nile Hope, a South Sudanese NGO.
