Ajay Galuak Akoy, 10, carries water in Bor, a city in South Sudan's Jonglei State that has been the scene of fierce fighting in recent months between the country's military and anti-government rebels. After fighting broke out in mid December 2013, control of the town changed hands four times in a few weeks. ACT Alliance members were among the first humanitarian agencies to enter the city in January 2014, and are providing services to thousands of people who are cautiously returning home to the troubled city. Akoy's water container was included in a packet of essential household supplies her family received. It was provided by Dan Church Aid and distributed by the Lutheran World Federation. Both organizations are members of the ACT Alliance.
