Caption : Ganyliel, hospital. This eight-year-old girl was playing outside when something bit her right arm, landing her in a lot of pain. As the swelling grew, she and her mother walked twelve hours to reach the nearest medical facility, where they were referred to the ICRC-supported hospital in Ganyliel. After examining her arm, the medical team decided to carry out a skin graft.

Description : Though this hospital mostly treats weapon wounds, it also caters to other emergencies like snake and scorpion stings that can be fatal. Her arm is still swollen, but the little girl feels much better and can't wait to go to school. "Education is so important", she says after attending the classes arranged by the South Sudan Red Cross Society at the medical facility. South Sudan has the highest proportion of out-of-school children in the world, with more than two million kids not receiving an education in 2018.
