Peace is, surely, much more than the "cessation of hostilities." The agreement signed between warring parties in South Sudan on Jan 23rd commits the combatants to ceasing their acts of violence. It will be, at best, only the first step in a long, long process of reconciliation, trust-building, and national unification.
MBB stands with the women and girls of South Sudan. They are the ones who can promote reconciliation. They are the ones who can move beyond tribal thinking. They are the ones who realize that "cessation of hostilities" is only the first step to lasting peace.
