The Hawke's Bay nurse helping war-torn South Sudan

Michael Morrah's trip to South Sudan was made possible with support from World Vision. You can donate to the South Sudan crisis appeal here.

South Sudan is a country devastated and torn apart by war.

The conflict has forced 2.3 million people from their homes. That's one in five people.

Behind the scenes, there are aid workers doing incredible work to save lives and Andrew Cameron from Hawke's Bay is one of those nurses.

He's worked in conflict zones around the world including Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq and now South Sudan.

In just five months he has helped 100 gunshot victims and in some cases, the war-wounded don't make it to hospital quick enough.

The hospital is located in a hostile environment, even for health workers. It sits on the edge of the Nile -- a key transport route for fighters.

Story went with World Vision NZ and Red Cross to see what has been done to help the communities and to provide them with the basics.
