Ajok Uogu holds her malnourished 2-year old daughter Awok as Marilyn Sad, a nurse from India, installs an IV line in the child's arm in the St. Daniel Comboni Hospital in Wau, South Sudan. Nursing student Chol Chol looks on.
Drought and armed conflict have pushed tens of thousands of people in Wau out of their homes, away from their farms, and unable to adequately feed themselves. The child was admitted to the hospital with severe malnutrition.
Sad is a lay volunteer with Solidarity with South Sudan, which runs the Catholic Health Training Institute in Wau, where Chol is a student.
