| UNITY STATE, South Sudan – Three-week old Kuer deep in the marshes of Unity State in South Sudan, where civilians hid from marauding soldiers in February of 2016. His mother had drowned in the river just five days earlier. Another new mother now breastfeeds Kuer, but she struggles to produce enough milk for two babies. It is unclear how many people have been lost to this war, but some estimates suggest more civilians have been killed in South Sudan than in Syria.
