#UnitedNations World Food Programme uses a fleet of 8 planes to drop food and nutritional supplies to communities in South Sudan reachable only by air.
Famine has gripped parts of South Sudan. War and a collapsing economy have left 100,000 people facing starvation, with a further 1 million people on the brink of famine.
Around five million women, children and men – more than 40 percent of South Sudan’s population – are in need of food, agriculture and nutrition assistance.
WFP provides lifesaving emergency assistance for 1.6 million people directly affected by conflict, and non-emergency food assistance for a further 1.6 million people. In conflict zones, WFP is using all means at its disposal – airdrops, river boats and distribution of food, cash or vouchers. 📸@worldfoodprogramme_official /George Fominyen
