Sean Sutton/MSF/Panos

Bentiu, Unity State, South Sudan

Nowal and her one month old baby Hoa sit in their makeshift shelter. The baby was born here and then was admitted to the Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) hospital for nine days because of breathing difficulties. They have no food and are extremely hungry. Some NGOs say that they are traders rather than people displaced by the flooding. However, they are all women and children and don't appear to have anything to trade.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by flooding which is occurring for the third year in a row, depriving people of livelihoods, flooding villages and ruining crops.
