A woman carries firewood she collected outside the Protection of Civilians (POC) site at the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) in Malakal, South Sudan on Friday, July 8, 2016. Most women from the site gather firewood and sell goods outside of the compound as men fear tribal violence outside the protection of the UNMISS walls. Women still endure much harassment and attacks at the hands of the Dinka tribe members and the SPLA.
The Malakal POC site houses over 32,000 displaced people mainly from the Shilluk and Nuer tribes. In February of this year, members of the Dinka tribe, who resided in the camp at the time, carried out a coordinated attack within the site leading to the destruction of hundreds of shelters and many deaths. Since then, most members of the Dinka tribe have fled to Malakal town where they occupy the homes of those still displaced.
