Caption : Languet area, Bor. This woman (65) lives with her daughter and grandchildren. She lost her two sons during the fighting in 2013. All the families’ property was burnt down and she was left with nothing. She cannot walk by herself and she survives by begging from people in the village and from visitors who come to the area. She is one of the people who received goats from the ICRC.

Description : “The sun has shined again! I will give these goats to my grandchildren to take care of them and when they produce, I will sell some to buy grains. With these goats, I can milk them, get meat from them and above all, when I die, my grandchildren can now inherit something that will give them a continued memory of me”, she says. People who cannot walk, are blind or have any other kind of disability are particularly vulnerable and affected. The ICRC aims to assist these people by giving them goats to build their resilience in the long term.
