Emergency livelihood kits for vulnerable families in South Sudan

Up to 95% of South Sudan’s population depends on farming, fishing or herding to meet their food and income needs; yet South Sudan faces the world’s worst food crisis. The conflict since December 2013 prevented farmers from accessing their fields during the key planting season, fishermen unable to access rivers, and herders left destitute as their cattle have been stolen, slaughtered, or sold off at less than their usual value. Furthermore, the influx of displaced people has strained the resources of already-poor communities.
