Three-year old Pajal Deng savors the flavor of wild leaves as he eats with his family in 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. His 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 Pajal's mother goes into the bush to harvest so-called "hunger foods" so her children have something to eat.<br />
