Two million people have been forced from their homes since December 2013, which marks the beginning of the South Sudan conflict. Today, an estimated 2.5 million men, women, and children face acute hunger and uncertainty of where their next meal will come from. Without an end to the conflict in sight, WFP fears that food insecurity will grow increasingly worse as the lean season approaches. WFP’s Executive Director Ertharin Cousin visited the conflict-hit country at the end of March.
