Amon Akuel Aler digs holes where she hopes to insert poles to begin the construction of a shelter in the internally displaced persons camp in Turalei, South Sudan. Families started arriving here shortly after fighting broke out in December 2013, and new families continued to arrive in March 2014 as fighting continued. Many are living in the open and under trees. The ACT Alliance is providing the displaced families and the host communities affected by their presence with a variety of support, including new wells. This woman has not seen her husband since the fighting began, and was separated from two of her five children as they fled Bentieu. She has not located them yet.
