old Palestinian man undergoes medical checks at a United Nations-run health center in Gaza
An old Palestinian man undergoes medical checks at a United Nations Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA)-run health center in Gaza September 22, 2015. As the United Nations celebrates its 70-year anniversary this year, Reuters documents the work of the organisation's main aid agency in the Gaza Strip, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). The agency runs schools including the al-Nour (Light) School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Children in Gaza City and has helped families to repair their homes or find temporary alternatives following the 2014 Gaza conflict. UNRWA said in January that a lack of international funding forced it to suspend cash payments for repairs to homes. The enclave has been under Israeli blockade for years and the two sides have waged two other wars since Hamas took control of Gaza in 2007. The agency is mostly funded by voluntary contributions and has struggled to keep pace with demand for its services, the U.N. said in August. Picture taken September 22, 2015. REUTERS/Mohammed Salem

A voluntary worker gives a bowl of soup to a man at the Mother Teresa of Calcutta eating center in Caracas March 17, 2014. The center, located in a back-street of Caracas, is frequented by the unemployed and homeless, as well as those who work but are unable to make ends meet. Shortages of basic products have become the norm in Venezuela over the last year and workers at soup kitchens face an increasingly difficult task of finding staple foods they need to provide a free hot daily meal. Opponents of Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro's government say the queues are a national embarrassment and symbol of failed socialist economics similar to the old Soviet Union. But officials say businessmen are deliberately hoarding products as part of an "economic war" against Maduro. Picture taken March 17, 2014.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has said that area should be returned to nature, initiated on February 2013 a voluntary $400 million buyback program for some 418 homes in the low-lying neighborhood situated between salt marshes and the Atlantic Ocean that was devastated by surging floodwaters in the historic October 29, 2012 hurricane. As the one year anniversary of the storm approaches and as demolition begins, homes in Oakwood beach now lay mostly vacant and abandoned as the modest ocean-side neighborhood which now resembles a ghost town is set to all but disappear.

As in many developing nations, international aid is both an invaluable help to South Sudan and a crutch that sometimes enables it to avoid reality. Development experts have grown more sophisticated in recent decades about how they deliver aid. But in fragile states such as South Sudan, getting the balance right between helping a country and helping that country help itself remains incredibly difficult. Picture taken June 1, 2012.
