Mary and her family have struggled to find food for the last three months. They survive on one meal a day, but her daughter, four-year-old Manut, is highly malnourished and underdeveloped for her age.
Most of the farmers in Mary’s village in northern South Sudan haven’t had a successful harvest since September 2016. Over three years of devastating conflict has left millions of people in the country in desperate need of humanitarian assistance.
Many families have resorted to fishing in a nearby river, but as a result, it has been exhausted of all its fish. For the last two weeks, Mary’s husband has gone out to fish, but has come home hungry and empty handed.
If food scarcity continues at this alarming rate, children will continue to become malnourished and die.
With your support we can scale up our response and provide life-saving food vouchers to vulnerable families like Mary’s so they have enough to survive.
Enough for everyone this Christmas and beyond
Please continue to give generously to our Christmas appeal until the 5 February 2018 and help us ensure families like Mary's have enough to eat.
