Comedy for Peace

UNMISS

Putting a smile on the face of war-torn South Sudan

South Sudan has not had much to laugh about over the last three-and-a-half years of brutal conflict but the UN mission, UNMISS, has been making an effort to put some smiles back onto the faces of people in the war-torn country.

The Comedy for Peace event in the capital, Juba, brought together hundreds of people to be entertained by the young nation's best comedians.

As Daniel Dickinson found out, the laughter also came with a very serious message.
