Hunger Peaks as South Sudan Marks ‘Uhuru’ (Independence) (For the Media)

WFP and partners aim to reach up to 4.8 million hungry people with assistance in some of the worst affected areas across the country by July. Without a sustained, comprehensive response, millions of people are at risk in this fifth straight year of conflict.
