Atouc Dut blows on a cinder to start a fire so she can cook food for her family in Malek Miir, a village in South Sudan's Lol State where a persistent drought has destroyed crops and left people hungry. A local partner of Christian Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance, drilled a well for the community and has provided food vouchers to hungry families, including Dut and her husband and four children. With food vouchers instead of bulk food, beneficiaries were able to buy the exact food they wanted, while at the same time supporting local traders and markets.
