South Sudan amputees: Lack of healthcare spurs infections

Lack of healthcare in a country devastated by civil war has left many with untreated injuries, leading some to develop serious infections that require amputations.

In South Sudan, injuries that are relatively simple to treat by doctors in other countries often result in amputation.

Three years of civil war have devastated the healthcare system and many resort to traditional healing methods.

By the time the injured decide to travel to a hospital, it can often be too late to save their limbs.
