South Sudan is one of the youngest countries in the world. In 2011, it declared independence from Sudan to the north. From the beginning, various ethnic groups have been vying for power. Civil war broke out at the end of 2013, which over the years claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. Of the 11 million South Sudanese citizens, several million have fled to neighboring countries or to other parts of South Sudan. The war formally ended in 2020 after negotiations, but peace has been fragile. In the wake of conflict and several droughts and floods, a large part of the population does not have enough to eat and depends on humanitarian assistance. Welthungerhilfe has been active in South Sudan since 2013.
