Description : As the world's newest country nears its fourth year of existence, South Sudan is facing a devastating reality. Extreme levels of violence in and around Leer over the last month have forced an estimated 100,000 people to flee their homes and seek safety in low-lying swamps far from civilization. As people in the area had to flee their homes and their crops, they are relying entirely on the ICRC for food. Starvation threatens if we are prevented from gaining access to these areas due to the renewed violence.

En momentos en que Sudán del Sur se aproxima a su cuarto año de existencia, su realidad cotidiana está signada por numerosas dificultades. Un nivel extremo de violencia en y alrededor de Leer durante el mes pasado ha obligado a unas 100.000 personas a huir de sus hogares y buscar refugio en lugares apartados de la civilización.
