Description : The life of every South Sudanese family has been affected by the armed conflict that started in 2013 and over the years spread. The ongoing violence has had profound and devastating effects on all areas of life, undermining access to food, clean water, basic healthcare and education.
Millions of people have been repeatedly forced to flee their homes, leaving behind everything they have, including their crops and livestock. Women, children and the elderly have had to live in remote swampy areas for months on end, surviving only on wild fruit. When these people return home, repeated looting often makes it difficult to impossible to get back to their normal way of life. Recurrent displacements, a lack of respect for civilians and their property, a disruption to markets and trade have all gradually led to the catastrophic consequences seen in some areas of South Sudan today.
