South Sudan: struggling for survival as conflict intensifies

People living in the border region between South Sudan and Sudan are struggling to survive in an area gripped by armed violence that continues to escalate. Getty photographer Tom Stoddart captures their struggle and the ICRC's efforts to help them.

Approximately 15,000 people displaced by fighting in May 2011 were given sesame, groundnuts and sorghum seed, plus tools for tilling and some food as seed protection.
