A young Dinka woman walks among cattle in Dong Boma, a village in South Sudan's Jonglei State. Most of the families in the village 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 the cattle herds that provide a foundation for their economy and culture.
The Lutheran World Federation, a member of the ACT Alliance, is helping the villagers restart their lives with support for housing, livelihood, and food security.
