WFP, UNHCR expect millions to be hungry if crisis continues

Date Published: 

The heads of the World Food Program and the UN Refugee Agency say millions of people will face hunger in the coming months if the situation in South Sudan doesn’t improve. The Executive Director of W-F-P, Ertharin Cousin, and the UN Higher Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, paid a two-day visit to the country. They met conflict-affected people and reviewed the on-going response and humanitarian needs. Addressing a press conference in Juba, Madam Cousin appealed to the international community to support the UN agencies to help the people affected by the conflict.
