May Peace Reign in South Sudan and Africa – A Reflection of the Living Conditions of Refugees South Sudan in Kakuma
When I came to Kakuma refugee, I felt like I had suffered more than anyone else. However, seeing the reality of life among the many other refugees – women and children, the elderly, those who now live with disabilities due to war – has made me think twice. This story is about the newly arriving refugees and how their lives have become after war. These refugees are suffering innocently while those who started the war sit back and watch their names on the nightly news. A petty struggle for political power that has displaced about 800,000 and caused the death of up to 10,000 people makes me wonder where the African Ubuntu culture – I am because we are! – has disappeared. Where is the humaneness, caring, sharing, and harmony that we inherited from our ancestors?
