South Sudan 2017
Mary Kuol carries water home from a well dug by the ACT Alliance in Yang Kuel, a village in South Sudan's Lol State where a persistent drought has destroyed crops and forced people to eat wild leaves to survive. Kuol is seven months pregnant.
The well was drilled in 2016 by a local partner of Christian Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance. The organization has also distributed food vouchers to hungry families in the region.
