South Sudan: Travesty & Tragedy

When working in South Sudan words like “travesty” and “tragedy” take on new meaning.

 

One woman is picking leaves off of a tree. She will boil these leaves, hoping the “soup” will provide some nutrition for her children.

Another woman is hiding in a swamp, infested with diseases I can’t pronounce, for three days. She’s waiting for the men who are killing her family and friends, and burning her village to the ground, to leave.

These are the people ASC is serving in this war torn nation.
