Where did you run from?

Bentiu, Unity State, South Sudan.

Where do you plan to go?

I’m not considering returning to South Sudan at the moment. If peace returned I would wait here another year before going back to make sure that the peace is real.

What item do you wish you had taken with you?

My land ownership documents.

Why do you still dream of this item?

To ensure my future and avoid having my land in South Sudan taken away from me.

What is your favourite item now?

Nothing.
