Caption/Description

The Dinka people of Sudan walk everywhere, often carrying heavy loads on their heads. A young boy and his mother walk from the food drop area back to their camp. This part of southern Sudan has been hit by famine, a result of the Civil War and poor weather for planting crops. An estimated 770,000 people are threatened with death by starvation. Ajiep, Sudan.
