Caritas helps once displaced farmers start life anew in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Peter Mboriundo fastens branches together as he builds a shelter for his family in Singbi, a village in South Sudan near the country's border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Once displaced by attacks from the Lord's Resistance Army, these families have returned home and are starting life anew with help from Caritas, which has provided seeds, tools and technical support to the rural farmers. Caritas is also helping mediate a dispute between the community and a large teak plantation that has laid claim to the land. The village is protected against further LRA attacks by a civilian militia, known as the Arrow Boys, which has also strengthened the community's organizational capacity. The farmers group is supported by the diocese of Tombura-Yambio and Caritas Austria.
