No breakfast

Six million people, half of the population, suffer food insecurity in South Sudan.

A seven-year-old boy drags a huge branch towards his school in Aber, a town in the Lakes region, in South Sudan. It’s a sweet picture because it’s an obligation for all students to bring firewood every morning, before starting classes. Teachers put this condition to the students to let the cook prepare their breakfast, which is often the only meal in the whole day.

But this young boy doesn’t know he won’t have breakfast today. It has been raining all morning in Aber and the firewood is now wet. The cook can’t use it and has decided not to work.

Nobody complains. Everyone go to class and tomorrow they’ll have better luck.
