Description : ICRC website, photo gallery "A street play draws attention to protection of health care workers in South Sudan", 31 August 2017

"“The play is about a local chief. One day, his pregnant wife eats castard (*a local sweet dish) and falls sick. He commands his guards to go to the hospital to get a doctor. It ends with the guards attacking the hospital and stealing the wrong medicine. Because they don’t know how to use the medicine, the wife and another patient die,” Akuei explained. He is the team leader of the street play and has also contributed to the script.
Volunteer actors from South Sudan Red Cross perform a weekly theatre drama where they raise awareness of the importance of protecting health-care workers and facilities."
