At dawn a woman collects water in the UN base in Bentiu, South Sudan, July 1, 2014. Throughout South Sudan the UN currently houses over 100,000 people who have fled their homes due to the ongoing conflict. In Bentiu which has over 45,000 people in the base, one of the greatest needs is fresh water. According to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) as of June 20, at least three children under 5 years old were dying per day from mainly diarrhea, pneumonia and malnutrition. These illnesses are the result of poor sanitation in the camp. Only 4.4 litres of clean water per person per day were available in the camp, which is far below the international standard of 15 litres, forcing people to drink from contaminated water sources.
