Cow branded with assault rifle in South Sudan peace villageAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A cow has an AK-47 branded into its hide in the Holy Trinity Peace Village in Kuron, a remote community in South Sudan's Eastern Equatoria State.
The region has been plagued by cattle raiding and child abduction in recent years. The Catholic Church-sponsored Holy Trinity Peace Village, centered in Kuron, has worked for years to foster reconciliation and peace between the region's pastoralist communities. Cattle remain the principal way to accumulate capital and are frequently a source of conflict.
The Peace Village is supported by Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance.
