Last week, we posted Part 1 of an interview with Robin Denney, an agricultural consultant who has worked with the Episcopal Church of Sudan to advise community leaders and farmers who have been displaced because of unrest and tribal violence.
Denney notes that 98 percent of South Sudanese do some sort of farming -- if only to put food on the table. Imagine, then, how devastating displacement can be to those who have spent months cultivating a plot of ground only to be suddenly uprooted and forced to leave a patch of tomato plants, or a banana tree, behind.
The photo above depicts a displacement camp in Lainya, South Sudan, where families try to re-establish a sense of order and cultivate new plots of land for personal and entrepreneurial farming.
Please check back later this week for Part 2 of our interview with Robin.
