After 25 years of conflict and misery, the Somali people see an end in sight.

That's according to John Ging, head of operations at the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

He was speaking at UN headquarters after returning from a fact-finding visit to Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia.

He said that each faced a unique set of challenges, but more help from donors was urgently needed to protect civilians from the effects of conflict and climate change.

UN Radio's Joshua Mmali, asked Mr Ging why food insecurity in South Sudan had become so much worse this year.
