One Seed at a Time

When harvests fail, famine stalks the land. When war spreads, even planting is impossible. But even when there is no food, women still need to feed their children.  Here we see two women in Narus, South Sudan, picking through a pile of rubbish to find edible seeds. Tiny seed by tiny seed, they collect a handful.

Foreign countries repeatedly try to send food aid to these regions, but conflict often closes the roads and prevents delivery.

Peace is the prerequisite for ending hunger.
