South Sudan


UN WFP Air cargos drop bundles of flour over the population of Ayod in the south of Sudan. Ayod is one of areas hit the worst by the consecutive famines that have battered the country for more than 30 years. The lack of harvest due to drought is aggravated by the longest and cruellest war in Sub-Saharan Africa between the north of Sudan and the animist factions of the south. As usual, hunger is used as a weapon of war. Due to this endemic catastrophe, the children receive with commotion the food that the iron birds defecate over their villages…never have they seen or heard that food is cultivated and comes from the ground.
