Summary: 

Sudan November 2007

As the flood swept across the landscape, people in the remote village of Orinyi, in SudanÍs Shuluk Kingdom, fled their homes for higher ground. The water destroyed everything in its path. Roughly 3,000 were stranded on a dry patch beside the village airstrip, an island in a sea of flood-water.
