A young girl digs for water in the parched earth of Jamam refugee camp in Upper Nile State, Sudan, March 2012.
“Getting water from the holes is very difficult and dangerous. I’m afraid of the bees and snakes. Life here is difficult,” said one 16-year-old girl trying to scoop a cup of muddy water for her and her family to drink.
Jamam housed more than 36,000 vulnerable people fleeing their homes in Blue Nile State to escape on going fighting between Khartoum’s government troops and the Sudanese Peoples Liberation Army.
