Rugged Cross


Nyamal Bush Rambank, 13, leans against a tree in a camp for internally displaced people in Twic County, Warrap State, South Sudan. The cross was carved in the trunk for an Easter service.

Nyamal came to Twic County in September 2014 from Unity State, which is rich with oil. Unity State has been the scene of much conflict since South Sudan erupted into civil war in December 2013.

Nyamal lives with her mother and four siblings. She prays that God will protect her and keep her healthy. She also prays that her father is still alive and that she might see him again. She prays for her siblings and for love in her family.

She prays that South Sudan would have lasting peace. And she asked people to pray for her father and for peace so that she can go back home.

World Vision works in Twic County in camps like this one, rehabbing or sinking boreholes, providing water, sanitation and hygiene, family tracking to reunite children with relatives, and providing reunification packages for families to help them take in children. Those packages include food, utensils, school uniforms. They also train community watch groups to ensure all is going well with the reunited children.
