Checking the net in South SudanAdd to Lightbox Download
Early in the morning, a young fisher checks his net in the river near Akobo, South Sudan.
Like several locations around the troubled country, the combination of fighting and flooding has worsened food insecurity in this area, yet fishing remains a sustainable way of supplying food to hungry families and income to those who catch and sell the fish.
DanChurchAid, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping families in Akobo with fishing hooks and twine for nets, along with other food and livelihood projects aimed at lowering vulnerability and increasing food security. It carries out that program in partnership with Nile Hope, a South Sudanese organization.
