Refugees from the civil war in South Sudan, at a camp in Adjumani, Uganda. These are the lucky ones; they’ve got pots and something to put in them, while hundreds of thousands more have been forced out of their villages and into the forest and rivers to live or die on their own. Worst of all was a report this week that the leaders of the two warring factions, the president and vice president, are skimming tens of millions of dollars in oil money for themselves and their families, buying up luxury properties all over the world. We have always maintained this brutal, ruinous war is not about tribal loyalties, it’s about oil money; and now there is proof. The helpless victims of the war have nowhere to turn, while their friends throughout the Anglican Communion pray, worry and feel equally powerless. (Stephen Wandera/Associated Press
