Liturgical dance among displaced people in South SudanAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
A youth dance group practices for their participation in Sunday Mass at the Catholic Church inside the Protection of Civilians area in the United Nations base in Malakal, South Sudan.
Some 35,000 people live in the camp, protected by UN peacekeeping troops. They were displaced from Malakal following the outbreak of a civil war in 2013. The armed conflict has a strong element of ethnic tension, and the mostly Shilluk and Nuer residents of the camp fear for their security from the largely Dinka population that has moved into their former town.
The dance group intentionally includes participants from both the Nuer and Shilluk papulations in the camp.
