Flooding in South SudanAdd to Lightbox Download
The climate crisis is making life difficult for James Kuony Malual. He's been a successful farmer in Akobo, South Sudan, growing crops to feed his six wives and send 18 of his children to school in Uganda and Ethiopia. But he says he can no longer depend on the weather. The rains don't come when they used to, and when they do come, they cause flooding worse than he's even seen. The last three years have been totally unpredictable, and he has lost more of his crops than he has been able to harvest.
DanChurchAid, a member of the ACT Alliance, has helped him diversify his crops, planting more vegetables that he can sell in the market in town, but it's a tough time to be a farmer in his part of the world.
DanChurchAid is providing support for livelihood activities and food security in Akobo in partnership with Nile Hope, a South Sudanese organization.
