Displaced families receive food in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Edith Ayok cooks beans that she received from the ACT Alliance on April 7, 2017, in Rumading, a village in South Sudan's Lol State where more than 5,000 people, displaced from their homes by drought and conflict, remain in limbo. In early 2017, they set out walking for Sudan, seeking better conditions, but were stopped from crossing the border. They remained camped out under the trees at Rumading, eating wild leaves as the rainy season approached.
In early April, Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance, began drilling a well in the informal settlement and distributed sorghum, beans and cooking oil to the most vulnerable families. The ACT Alliance is carrying out the emergency assistance in coordination with government officials and the local Catholic parish.
