Mary Arkangelo stands at Kuajock market, where she cooks and sells tea to try and help her large family survive.
She is one of almost 250,000 Sudanese refugees living in South Sudan, but her hopes for a free and safe life have been dashed by the persistent fighting which endangers her and her family.
“Now I don’t want to stay here,” she says. “My eldest son, who is 17 years old, was forcefully recruited to the army so he cannot continue with his education.”
Mary says she will move to Khartoum as civil wars continue to rage in Southern Kordofan and her homeland, Blue Nile State.
“I’m going back to Sudan,” she says.
