The conflict in South Sudan has forced thousands of people to flee their homes. More than 90,000 people are sheltering in UN compounds in several parts of the country. WFP is installing milling machines as part of its assistance to people sheltering in these compounds, as seen here at the camp located in UN House, Juba.
"Before the milling machine was set up we (women) had to take the sorghum outside (of the camp) for grinding," said Nyeithin Kai, who had brought the sorghum she received from WFP to the mill. "Now our lives have changed since they brought the machine inside here (the camp). Life is better!"
Some children living in the camp for internally displaced people (IDPs) pose in-front of the building hosting the milling machine within UN House in Juba. They are part of the more than 1.1 million people affected by the conflict who have so far received lifesaving food and nutrition support from WFP and its partners in South Sudan.
