Stretcher Bearers
Photograph by Meredith Davenport

A wounded Nuba rebel is carried to the airstrip at Kauda for evacuation to Kenya, where he can be treated in a hospital. After the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Army, based in southern Sudan, began to infiltrate the Nuba Mountains, the government surrounded the region with troops and instituted a blockade. The sole way in or out became illegal flights arranged by humanitarian groups in Kenya. As fuel and spare parts disappeared, so did vehicles, until the only way to travel was on foot.
