South Sudan: More Than One Million on Brink of Starvation

May 21, 2017

It has been three months since famine, caused by a long-standing conflict between the government and rebels groups, was declared in some parts of South Sudan.

But areas outside the famine zones are now also suffering from severe food shortages. More than a million people in the country are on the brink of starvation. Some of them are trying to flee to neighbouring Sudan for relief.
