In times of conflict, the psychological toll is especially hard on children. But they often have no way to explain what they are going through.

As its part of wider efforts to help children affected by conflict, UNICEF recently organized a photography workshop in Rumbek, South Sudan, to give 20 youths an opportunity to tell their stories and express their feelings.

“In situations like this in South Sudan it can be a kind of therapy. It starts like a sort of game, then they have to go out and take pictures and write captions. It helps bring out something they have inside,” explained lead facilitator Giacomo Pirozzi, a professional photographer.
