  • Description

    The following images are from a story about food aid in Souther Sudan. The nation of Sudan has been plagued by civil war since 1983. More than four million people have been displaced from their homes since the beginning of the war, and two million people have died as a result of the war. People in the south of Sudan began fighting the northern government of Sudan because of the north's invasion of lands to extract resources like oil and water, as well as to escape the oppression posed to them by the strict rules of Islamic Sharia law.
