Death by starvation threatens about 100 thousand inhabitants.
The United Nations declared famine in several areas of southern Sudan. These are the findings of the world food programme of the United Nations.
About one million South Sudanese are on the brink of starvation: of them, according to UNICEF, more than 250 thousand children. Just from malnutrition in South Sudan suffers 40% of the population, or 4.9 million people.
Almost 100 thousand residents of the country may die soon if the country has not received sufficient humanitarian assistance.
The most difficult food situation created in the province of Wahda (unity) in the North of the country. As emphasized by the representatives of the world food programme of the United Nations, despite the efforts of humanitarian organizations, food supply to South Sudan, is not enough to help all the starving people in the most affected regions.
The economic situation in South Sudan, which in 2013 is in a state of civil war between the nation representing the Dink authorities led by President Salva Kiir and opposition, has been deteriorating for several years. During the armed conflict in the region killed thousands of people, more than two million were displaced.
