GANYIEL, South Sudan, Nov 27 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Martha's fear grows each morning as her toes touch the cold and muddy water of the swamp in a remote part of South Sudan.
Yet she steps confidently into the chest-deep marsh, her clothes drenched and her feet sinking into the slippery mud as she holds her schoolbag above her head to keep it dry.
Mobile network operators around the world are leveraging their mobile money bulk payment offerings to deliver humanitarian cash transfers to people affected by crises.

NEW YORK, Nov 29 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Civil war in South Sudan is generating unseen levels of domestic violence, according to a study released on Wednesday showing a reported increase in the brutality and frequency of assaults.
Tens of thousands of people have been killed and a third of the East African country's 12 million residents have been forced to flee since civil war broke out in 2013.
CONTEXT AND METHODOLOGY
Nyal Town is located in Northern Panyijiar County, Unity State, along the banks of the Sudd, the third largest swamp in the world. Since the beginning of the crisis, IDPs from Unity and Jonglei states have perceived Nyal as a safe location with ample resources.
Recently, Nyal has also become a key location for people traveling to and from nearby islands.
Following the beginning of the conflict in South Sudan in 2013, the town of Wadakona, Manyo County, has been contested by various armed actors until March 2015, when it fell under government control.
Since then, spillovers of fighting in closeby areas of Manyo County has reached Wadakona on occasions, further triggering displacement. In February 2017, fighting reached Wadakona and remaining civilians were evacuated to Renk.1 Most recently, in June 2017, fighting took place in the nearby towns of Ghabat, Kuek and Kola.
