Members of an ACT Alliance team talk with villagers about the dangers of unexploded ordnance near the South Sudan town of Bor, which has been the scene of heavy fighting between government troops and rebels since a dispute within the ruling party turned violent in December 2013 and quickly ripped the newly independent nation along ethnic and tribal lines. The mine risk education team is part of the humanitarian mine action program of Dan Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance. The program also deploys explosive ordnance disposal teams to locate and safely remove dangerous items from this most recent conflict as well as ordnance left over from earlier decades of civil war.
