To South Sudan’s woes, add famine—50,000 children at risk of deathby Ty McCormick
MALAKAL, South Sudan — Nyarony Choing is as old as South Sudan. And like the world’s newest nation, she has been to hell and back before her fourth birthday.
When civil war broke out eight months ago in Juba, the capital, Nyarony’s mother fled with her three children, winding up in a refugee camp inside a base run by the United Nations in the northern city of Malakal. Every time it rains, which is often, the floor of their tent disappears underwater, the thick, cloying mud of the Nile basin mixing with the human excrement that flows freely in the camp.
