There isn't much good news coming out of South Sudan these days, given the spreading civil war. Yet daily life goes on for the 702 girls at St Bakhita Girls' School. Education is recognized as a great "stabilizer" for children in unstable situations. School provides structure and security (and yes, fun and games) even in war zones and refugee camps. Here you see the happiness of young girls who've received pillowcase dresses from Mercy Beyond Borders. The very first dresses of their own! More than enough reason to rejoice!
