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. Of the 11 million South Sudanese citizens, several million have fled to neighbouring countries or to other parts of South Sudan. 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.
