After working together in a community garden, women sing and dance as they walk home on April 12, 2017, atop a dyke they constructed to control flooding around Dong Boma, a Dinka village in South Sudan's Jonglei State. Most of the women's families recently returned home after being displaced by rebel soldiers in December, 2013, and they face serious challenges in rebuilding their village while simultaneously coping with a drought which has devastated their cattle herds.
The Lutheran World Federation, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping villagers restart their lives with support for housing, livelihood, and food security.
