La vita quotidiana del campo profughi

South Sudanese refugee children play on swings during morning break in the yard of the Ombechi nursery school, which has over 500 pupils and is supported by UNICEF and Save the Children, in Bidi Bidi, Uganda Wednesday, June 7, 2017. Bidi Bidi is a sprawling complex of mud-brick houses that is now the world's largest refugee settlement holding some of those who fled the civil war in South Sudan, which has killed tens of thousands and driven out more than 1.5 million people in the past three years, creating the world's largest refugee crisis.

Sono oltre un milione e mezzo i profughi dovuti al conflitto che negli ultimi anni ha insanguinato il Sud Sudan: la maggior parte ha trovato rifugio in Uganda, in enormi campi profughi, dove sono state scattate queste foto. Una vita certo non facile, ma che rivela anche dei momenti di serenità.

Nella prima foto, ragazzini giocano nel cortile della scuola di Ombechi, dove 500 alunni studiano grazie all’aiuto dell’Unicef. Una donna trasporta un sacco di mais, soddisfatta dopo la distribuzione viveri nel campo di Bidi Bidi; mais che viene poi diviso tra le famiglie, oppure distribuito in forma di una sorta di zuppa.

Nel campo sono numerosi i bambini: qui ne vediamo una che si protegge dalla piggia, una che si copre gli occhi in una risata, e una piccola in braccio alla mamma; mentre due ragazzini portano con sé qualche provvista – dei piccoli polli ancora vivi – in vista del viaggio di trasferimento in bus in un altro campo.
