WFP to Ramp Up Food Aid in South Sudan Next Year

Published on 30 December 2011

The World Food Program reports it is scaling up its humanitarian operation in South Sudan next year to support 2.7 million people affected by hunger and conflict. WFP says crop failure brought about by little and erratic rainfall this year is worsening food insecurity in this newly independent country. War is raging along the border between South Sudan and Sudan, its northern neighbor.   This is adding to the misery already felt by the nearly eight million people living in this newly independent state.
