Famine in South Sudan and Kenya
Order of Malta special initiative against hunger
Cologne, Malteser International European HQ, 19 April 2017
South Sudan-recultivating the fields
To combat the threat of famine overtaking large areas of South Sudan, and affecting over three million people, 1.4 million of whom are children, the Order of Malta’s international relief agency, Malteser International, is working with local partners to improve nutritionally-sensitive agriculture – a special initiative against hunger. Focus is on the communities of Maridi Central, Mambe and Ngamunde in the South Sudanese State of Western Equitoria.
Practical measures for life-giving support
Malteser International is providing tools and seeds, giving training in modem locally-adapted farming methods, and seek to revive veterinary medicine in the area. They also supply schools with teaching materials, and school gardens with seeds, plants and tools, so that agricultural education is once again part of the school curriculum.
