Nyayan Nyak feeds her 2 year old son Lam Kuony Plumpy Nut twice a day, part of the Therapeutic Feeding Program for malnourished children at the MSF-H Nasir Hospital. Lam is soon ready to be discharged and monitored on the Home-Based Feeding Program. Food insecurity is prevalent in Southern Sudan this year, after a short rainy season produced low crop yields, and thousands have been displaced by tribal violence. To reach the hospital, Lam's mother Nyayan Nyak walked two days from their village, Kietch.
