South Sudan, 2014: Small-leaved succulent plants like the ones Nyabel Wal holds grow close to the ground all around the town of Kiech Kon. “Since January, we have been living without food, except for the wild grass,” she says of her family of five. One of her children is suffering from severe acute malnutrition. UNICEF, the World Food Programme and partners have deployed rapid response aid, including nutrition support, to the town, but needs remain urgent there – and countrywide.
