UMCOR has distributed woven mats to families in the El Ferdous camp, including this woman, Adut Malek Wul, and her children. The mats are critically important as the rainy season gets under way, as they help keep children out of the mud and thus improve their chances of staying healthy.Credit: Paul Jeffrey/UMCOR
