"After Julia lost her tooth, she placed it in on top of their tukul (*the hut where they sleep). In their culture, they do this because they believe this way the tooth will grow back. Julia is shy to open her mouth, because other kids sometimes laugh at her because she lost her teeth. “I’m sure they will grow back”, she says.
The ICRC distributed emergency food to 1,000 families in the village of Deim Zubeir in northwest South Sudan on August 10 and 11. The assistance will feed 6,000 people. According to local authorities, Deim Zubeir is home to 36,000 people, but the community is now hosting 18,000 displaced persons, a state that is stretching food and water resources.”
