After surviving a dash for freedom, South Sudanese just happy to have home

KULE REFUGEE CAMP, Ethiopia, April 14 (UNHCR) – The ordinary act of cooking sorghum stew comes as a nearly revolutionary blessing for 25-year-old Nyakuor Duer after all she's survived. The South Sudanese woman trekked 22 days on foot, feeding four small children wild leaves and fruit plucked from trees along the way, just to find safety in next-door Ethiopia.

She and the children, ranging from a few months to 11 years, made it. Her husband, five brothers, her mother and stepmother did not. She has no idea what happened to them. Whether they are dead or alive.
