Where did you run from?

Jonglei State.

Where do you plan to go?

Back to South Sudan when peace returns.

What do you wish you could have taken with you? And why do you still dream of it?

My goats, my cattle and my clothes. Because these were my only possessions.

What is your favourite item now? And what makes this item very precious?

The sack of sorghum flour and beans that I receive from the World Food Programme (WFP) every month. I hold on tightly to this because for me it is important to have something to eat so that I can stay alive until God decides my fate.
