How to have a bath in Yei

Water is a huge problem here in Southern Sudan, especially clean drinking water. In the picture here, water is being hand-pumped to provide washing and bathing water for the 80 or so of us who have gathered at the ACROSS mission station in Yei. There are a number of NGO efforts here to bring more water supplies to more people, but it remains a crtical need, along with decent medical treatment, and more simple things like good nutrition and mosquito nets.
