A combination of civil war, economic collapse and drought have pushed parts of the South Sudan into deadly famine and displaced millions of people. Since 2011, the people of Syria have also been living in a state of conflict, forcing them to seek refuge in neighboring countries. The ongoing violence in both South Sudan and Syria is separating children from their families and destroying communities, leaving children and mothers acutely malnourished and at the risk of death.
