Nasir

Nasir is a South Sudanese town on the Sobat River. The town’s official name is Al-Nasir—Arabic for “the supporter.” The cattle-keeping Nuer tribe, known for the six horizontal lines scarred across their foreheads, inhabits the region.

Many families live in compounds consisting of mud huts. The people rely on subsistence farming, corn being one of the most popular crops. During the rainy season, the ground transforms into a sticky, tar-like substance making travel difficult.

Every Village has trained pastors, drilled wells, and built a radio tower in the area.
