"On the Brink of an Abyss"
Women grieve the loss of their home in a village between Mingkaman and Bunagok, due to a sudden fire inside their hut.
After decades of war against the north of the country, in 2011 South Sudan gained independence, becoming the youngest state in the world. Since more than one year the civil war between the different ethnic groups has brought the country on the brink of an abyss, confirming it as one of the poorest in the world.
