South Sudan, 2016: Girls wash foraged wild greens in a river’s unsafe waters, in the Torit region in Eastern Equatoria State, where late rains and insecurity in the region have led to failed crops and severe food insecurity, especially for the poorest. An estimated 2.8 million people in the country, or a quarter of the population, are facing acute food and nutrition insecurity as a result of prolonged conflict, a worsening economic crisis and diminished household food stocks.
