Sudanese dying of dehydration as they flee violence | CBC News

Canadian aid worker Tara Newell says she helped a mother dig a grave for her three-year-old child a few days ago after the infant died cradled in the woman’s arms on the side of a road in violence-plagued South Sudan.

“We had to help the mother bury the child on the side of the road so she could continue on and get water for herself,” said the Canadian aid worker, deployed with the group Doctors Without Borders in South Sudan these past six weeks.

The woman was among 35,000 Sudanese refugees forced to walk 25 kilometres to a new camp after a temporary gathering point ran out of water.
