In Sudanese parish of refugees, priest works to give people hope

Father Biong Kuol's parish is a sprawling collection of temporary huts made from sticks and sun-bleached plastic sheeting. A few skinny cows and goats wander about. The huts contain few personal belongings, as most of the displaced families living here fled from villages to the north with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They've lived almost two years in a camp that the world is trying hard to ignore.
