Although malnutrition is caused by a number of factors, it cannot be effectively addressed without improved nutrition for children and adults. This is exactly what aim for since last September in collaboration with our partner organization Cesvi, a member of Alliance2015, operating in South Sudan’s Northern Bahr el Ghazal province within a project financed by the European Union.
According to the latest anthropometric surveys, about 16% of children living in the Northern Bahr el Ghazal State of South Sudan are acutely undernourished, having too low weight for their height. Many more are stunted, resulting in a lower cognitive and physical development and higher vulnerability to diseases. While undernutrition is often associated with lacking food, available research shows that other factors have an equally important role to play.
Juba, 12 May 2014 – On 20 May 2014, the international community will convene in Oslo, Norway, to discuss how to address the humanitarian crisis in South Sudan. In just under five months since fighting erupted, the situation in South Sudan has deteriorated severely, causing 1.3 million people to flee from their homes, including an estimated 300,000 to neighboring countries. Over 4 million people, including over 2.5 million children, are extremely vulnerable to food insecurity, as people have been displaced from their sources of survival. This crisis is worsening on a daily basis.
