Father Mike Bassano, a Maryknoll priest from the United States, comforts a newly displaced man resting on the floor of a makeshift Catholic chapel inside a United Nations base in Malakal, South Sudan. More than 20,000 civilians have lived inside the base since shortly after the country's civil war broke out in December, 2013, but renewed fighting in 2015 drove another 5,000 people, including this man, into the relative safety of the camp. Bassano lives in the camp to accompany the people there.
