15 imagesOn the 18th of July this year the South Sudanese community in the UK gathered together to debate their personal and collective perspectives on how to achieve justice, reconciliation, peace and unity for all South Sudanese. Those that make up the diaspora community in the UK fled their beloved home as a result of severe conflict and instability. Along with their children and grandchildren - some who have never even stepped on the land they call home - they met in London with Bishop Emeritus Paride Taban, a recipient of the UN peace prize, to call for peace in South Sudan. Click the '+' symbol on each image to read their reflections on the conflict, their hopes for peace and the memories they have of their home. The photos and stories from this project were produced in collaboration with Christian Aid and the Christian Aid Collective.

42 imagesDeep seated poverty in Rajasthan has resulted in some of the worst maternal and infant mortality rates in India. Receiving little education, women are regularly overworked, unskilled, mistreated and powerless. Young women in rural Rajasthan are among the most discriminated against groups in Indian society. Malnourishment is rife, and poor health, due to barriers accessing health services and institutional birth care, leaves women weak and dangerously vulnerable during childbirth. The Navjeevan (New Life in Hindi) Maternal and Child Health Project in Jalore, Rajasthan aims to reduce the levels of maternal and child mortality by targeting the most vulnerable in one of the poorest regions of the state. Implemented by Indian NGO EFICOR and funded by TEAR Fund New Zealand, the programme aims to bring life to dormant institutional infrastructure and, through education and support, empower the community to use the services available to them.
