A girl throws ash on an animal on April 12, 2017, in a cattle camp in Dong Boma, a Dinka village in South Sudan's Jonglei State. Most of the families in the village recently returned home after being displaced by rebel soldiers in December, 2013, and they face serious challenges in rebuilding their village while simultaneously coping with a drought which has devastated the cattle herds that provide a foundation for their economy and culture.<br />
