South Sudan: WFP Airlifts Food To Families In Jonglei State

WFP has begun airlifting food into Jonglei State, South Sudan following an outbreak of fighting between rival communities.

Moving food into the area is extremely difficult due to the road conditions at this time of year, forcing WFP to conduct airlifts.
