Most of South Sudan is in the grip of a protracted humanitarian crisis fueled by years of chronic underdevelopment, conflict and natural disasters. In December 2013 political conflict erupted into abrupt clashes in Juba, which quickly spread across the country. A total of 1.5 million South Sudanese have been displaced and 2.5 million people are currently facing a food crisis.
