South Sudan: protecting tribal wealth
05-05-2011 Film Ref. VF-CR-F-01084w2
Life without cattle for people in South Sudan is impossible to imagine. Cattle is currency and for the Murle, a pastoral tribe, they are their only source of livelihood. But this livelihood is increasingly threatened from drought, disease and conflicts over migratory routes and grazing land. The ICRC is working with government and local partners to vaccinate 100,000 cattle belonging to the Murle in Pibor County, Jonglei state.
