Civilians are being trapped by the violence in South Sudan, unable to access humanitarian aid.
Seven-month-old Makool Malou is among the growing number of children who depend on World Vision’s nutrition program for survival in impoverished South Sudan’s Warrap state.

Cease-fire announced Thursday in Addis Ababa could mean aid agencies can finally access areas where children and families have been.
