Women unload emergency food in South SudanAdd to Lightbox Download
Women unload emergency food aid in Akobo, South Sudan, on October 6, 2021. Like several locations around the troubled country, the combination of fighting and flooding has worsened food insecurity.
The 50 pound bags of sorghum, provided by the United Nations' World Food Program, were transported by river barge to the remote community, a lengthy and dangerous process. On October 2, as it was traveling in a convoy of boats carrying relief supplies, the boat was fired upon and two people were wounded. They were hospitalized after the boat arrived in Akobo, which is near the Ethiopian border.
DanChurchAid, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping families in Akobo with food and livelihood projects aimed at lowering vulnerability and increasing food security.
