Adut Dheiu eats wild leaves with four of her children 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. Dheiu and her five children, who often don't go to school because without food they are too weak to study, have received food vouchers from a local aid organization supported by Christian Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance. The vouchers allowed families like hers to buy the food they needed, while supporting local traders and markets. Yet it wasn't enough, and Dheiu goes into the bush to harvest the so-called "hunger foods" so her children have something to eat.
