KAKUMA, Kenya – Every once in a while, Joyce Dabor is jolted from sleep by memories of the day she was separated from her children. It was the day they finally escaped the bloody conflict in South Sudan.
Ms. Dabor was pregnant at the time, and a widow – her husband had been killed in the conflict. As her family was being evacuated to the Kakuma refugee camp, in northern Kenya, she lost sight of her two children.
It would be days before she saw them again.
Haunted by memories of the conflict
Magwi—Pageri road completion. On 29 September WFP’s Communications Officer and the Feeder Roads Programme Officer visited the road completed in Magwi county, Eastern Equatoria state. Communities along the road explained in detail how the improved road has already had a positive impact on their businesses, health and food security.

Additionally sick patients or women in labor can be taken to the hospital more quickly.
