Mary Nyariakalok, a mother of six, says: ‘There is no food and I don’t know how to manage.’ She lives in Unity state, and is picking through white maize that has been spilled. ‘All these grains I’m now collecting, after I clean them and cook them, will give food to my family for one day at least.’ Women and children have been hit hardest by famine with half of all children under five acutely malnourished. Meanwhile nearly 2 million women and girls are at risk of gender-based violence.
