Regina Abuk displays wild fruits on which she and her neighbors survive in Yang Kuel, a village in South Sudan's Lol State where a persistent drought has destroyed crops and left people hungry. The fruit--a so-called "hunger food"--must be dried, pulverized, and boiled before it can be eaten.<br />

A local partner of Christian Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance, dug a new well for the community in 2016, providing a source of safe water and saving Abuk a one-hour walk to a well. The organization has also distributed food vouchers to hungry families in the region.
