As pockets of conflict continue to destablise South Sudan, much hope has been placed on the most recent peace deal.
The world has turned its back on the Nuba people of Sudan. Despite the critical need for food, none of the organisations involved in helping people in dire need have attempted to deliver aid to them.
At a time when poverty and hunger levels are declining around the world, famine is recurring, driven by conflicts and natural disasters. But timely action by governments and aid groups can save lives.
Nearly half of South Sudan's population could be severely food insecure and at risk of death in the coming months because of the avoidable acts of civil war in a land of plenty.
