"“I have not yet received food from the ICRC, but I have been given food from neighbors that already got their distribution. They gave it to us, because we didn’t have any food since the morning. I will not be able to give back to them, but our culture is so that if you have nothing, your neighbors will not leave you like that. If I have something another day, I will also give to someone who doesn’t have anything. Our culture is like this, because we know that tomorrow it might be you who have nothing”, Kelika Jahn explains. She has four children and is from Raja.
The ICRC distributed emergency food to 1,000 families in the village of Deim Zubeir in northwest South Sudan on August 10 and 11. The assistance will feed 6,000 people. According to local authorities, Deim Zubeir is home to 36,000 people, but the community is now hosting 18,000 displaced persons, a state that is stretching food and water resources.”
