Cleaner, Safer Fuel in Bentiu, South Sudan
Year after year, flooding continues to devastate the lives of many families in Bentiu. Approximately 83,000 people have been displaced from their homesteads and now live in IDPs camps in the town. The impact has been especially difficult on women who have had to travel increasingly long distances to fetch firewood. In addition to the extra effort needed to get fuel for cooking, the long walks put women at risk of sexual assault. DRC has been working with women to come up with a better solution.
