In the town of Aweil, South Sudan twenty eight year old Athill-Chok has six children including twin baby boys eight months old suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Athill tries to breast feed the twins but hardly any milk is produced.The whole family including Athill's husband Adim are also suffering from malnutrition.The family live on nothing but the seeds from a common grass that grows around their meager straw shelter. The seed has barely any nutritional value at all. " We can now only pray to God to save us" Athill says sadly.
