FAO providing fishing kits to tackle malnutrition and hunger in famine-hit Unity State - South Sudan

Apr 2017

The Mayendit market is broken due to the conflict and hasn’t been functional for some time. All that was available at the market was dry fish. The community here have rivers, places they could fish, but we only found dry fish that had been there some time and the price is very high for dry fish. When FAO gave us the fishing kits to distribute, just yesterday (11 April 2017), then we already had fresh fish. So, you can bring down malnutrition and even the market prices for fish, and give them fishing kits.
