Since the start of March, rain has been falling every day, filling the camps with mud and puddles. Imagine starting each day exhausted and wet, and knowing that the risk of cholera and malaria grows with each rain.
I think I learned from these photos that no one wears a raincoat, that some wear boots or take off their shoes entirely, that there are risks of being soaked by a passing UN vehicle….
