Nyayua Thang, 62, left, stands waist-deep in the floodwaters in front of an abandoned primary school in South Sudan. Members of her village, displaced by extreme flooding as a result of heavy rainfall, are using the building as a refuge. Only small mud dikes at the entrance of the door are keeping the water out.

The photo series Unyielding Floods recently won its fifth award this year. It captures the strength and hardship of those affected by flooding of biblical proportions in South Sudan.
