Recent tribal fighting in South Sudan has left thousands of people with little to no source of food and the UN says the situation appears to be getting worse.

Aid organisations have warned donors that the country is facing a humanitarian emergency.

They say that if violence in the region continues to send more refugees into camps, there will not be enough funds to last through the year.
