An entire generation of residents – some 1700 families – in the village of Kuanya, South Sudan, have known nothing but hunger, sickness, loss, and war. Most everyone here is so hungry, they are forced to eat leaves to survive. Their water source is a hole in the ground that fills every few hours with muddy water teeming with insects. Few can read or write, and children are forced to quit school to care for younger siblings. While the situation in this village is dire, the people here are eager for change…
