A tributary of the Nanam River in Pibor, Jonglei State. Pibor is one of the largest villages of the Murle people, who are an entirely nomadic community of cattle herders. Violence and displacement in March, along with a non-productive rainy season, has led to food shortages in the market because boats can't travel the river and trucks won't pass on the roads for security reasons. Malnutrition is reaching acute levels in the area and MSF is the only healthcare providing organisation operating in Pibor.
