Five-year old Akuei Deng blows on a cooking fire that is heating some wild leaves her mothered gathered in the bush outside Pamat, a village in South Sudan's Lol State where a persistent drought has destroyed crops, left people hungry, and pushed up incidences of malnutrition. Her family has received food vouchers from a local aid organization supported by Christian Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance. The vouchers allowed the families to buy the food they needed, while supporting local traders and markets. Yet it wasn't enough, and Akuei's mother has to search for so-called "hunger foods" so her children have something to eat.<br />
