South Sudan conflict and food insecurity
Years of rebel fighting and ethnic violence have created a humanitarian disaster with terrible consequences for children, including malnutrition, lost education, separation from family, and trauma.
South Sudan gained independence in 2011. But political rivalries in one of the world's newest states gave way to conflict by the end of 2013, triggering massive displacement and driving much of the country deeper into poverty.
By 2017, a severe drought added to the country's misery. Food insecurity together with a political power struggle forced one-quarter of South Sudan's 12 million people to flee their homes.
