Digging for Water
In 2012 the Jamam refugee camp in Upper Nile State, South Sudan housed 36,500 vulnerable people who had fled across the border from their homes in Blue Nile State to escape fighting between Khartoum’s troops and the Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army. Water was desperately scarce in the camp and at a dried-up watering hole every day dozens of thirsty children dug deep holes and caves into the parched earth to scoop up cups of muddy water.

عام 2012، كان مخيم جمام للاجئين في ولاية أعالي النيل بجنوب السودان يأوي 36500 شخص مستضعف كانوا قد فرّوا عبر الحدود من منازلهم في ولاية النيل الأزرق هرباً من القتال الدائر بين قوات الخرطوم وجيش التحرير الشعبي السوداني. كانت المياه شحيحة للغاية فكان الأطفال العِطاش بالعشرات يحفرون يومياً حُفراً وكهوفاً عميقة في الأرض الجافة لجمع أكوابٍ من المياه الموحلة.
