South Sudan, 2014: Today marks a tragic anniversary for South Sudan: one year since the eruption of violence that has left nearly 750,000 children internally displaced and forced more than 320,000 to seek refuge abroad. Rates of malnutrition in children have more than doubled as a result of the conflict. In Jonglei State, a child’s feet are checked for oedema, a sign of severe acute malnutrition, during a UNICEF-supported nutrition screening programme.
