Henry - South Sudan

"I was operated on for a hernia and when I survived I found this cap and felt that I deserved it."

Conflict and violence forced thousands of people, just like Henry, to flee their fertile land and abandon their belongings. He’s lining up waiting for seeds, tools and food being distributed by the International Committee of Red Cross.

“I have seven children and they were all very happy when I survived … The wound still hurts when I work, but I hope this distribution will help us.” Photo: ICRC/Mari Aftret Mortvedt/CC BY-NC-ND
