Dau Chol Thuc works on the roof of his new house in Dong Boma, a Dinka village in South Sudan's Jonglei State, on April 12, 2017.

The blue fabric used to fasten many of the sticks together is torn from insecticide-treated bednets, which villagers have discovered provide a termite-resistant material for construction.<br />

The Lutheran World Federation, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping villagers restart their lives with support for housing, livelihood, and food security.
