Kapoeta North is home to the pastoralist Tiposa tribe; the men are cattle keepers and women cultivate small amounts of sorghum and greens. Life is difficult. Families have no access to safe drinking water, and walk for hours along dusty footpaths to reach the nearest health facility. Some even walk for two days. Children die from preventable diseases such as diarrhoea and dehydration, and malnutrition rates are high. Here, mothers and children in Paringa village register to receive immunizations and long-lasting insecticide treated mosquito nets from the Save the Children.
