Image caption:
”Broken” : South Sudan refugee twins Jacob and Simon, 14 at the new arrivals centre in Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Settlement on the Kenya-South Sudan border. They explained how they had walked barefoot for 21 days to reach Kenya with their mother Adut Akot Ker, 44 and 5 siblings, showing swollen and cut feet. With tears rolling down their cheeks, they recounted how last December armed men shot and killed their elder brother and father as the family escaped fighting in South Sudan’s capital, Juba: “There was a lot of shooting and shouting, they told us to go on ahead… They went back to try and stop them chasing us, but the men shot and killed them,” Simon recounted.
They are traumatised.
I photographed the twins just after they met UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi who spent this week in #Uganda and #Kenya to witness at first hand the consequences of 5 years of conflict in the country. As of October 31, 2017 Kenya had 111, 892 refugees from South Sudan. By ‪December 31, 2018‬ Kenya is projected to have 140,000 refugees from South Sudan. Grandi appealed to South Sudan’s leaders to agree to peace.
