After over two years of conflict in South Sudan, there's hope that a peace deal signed in August last year is finally being implemented. After months of delay, rebel leader Riek Machar is to return to Juba to take up his post as vice president.
Half of all South Sudanese depend on food aid. This is not only because of droughts, but also bloody power struggles. The main victims in this cycle of violence and hunger are women and children.
