Women working on the roads in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Women work repairing a road near the Holy Trinity Peace Village in Kuron, a remote community in South Sudan's Eastern Equatoria State. The women gathered the stones and are placing them on the road surface to make it more usable in wet weather.
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. Constructing and maintaining good roads encourages movement and freer interchange between people of different tribes.
The Peace Village is supported by Norwegian Church Aid, a member of the ACT Alliance.
