MSF Nurse Assistants wait for the Isolation Ward to be opened to place the body of Kidich Jiji, 3, for the family to bring assistance for burial. The girl died from cerebral malaria in the MSF Primary Health Care Center (PHCC) Pediatric Inpatient Ward in Pibor, Jonglei State. Kidich was transferred from a remote MSF Primary Health Care Unit (PHCU) in Gumuruk, after convulsions and coma. Pibor is one of the largest villages of the Murle people, who are an entirely nomadic community of cattle herders, and MSF is the only healthcare providing organisation operating in the area.
