“As I talked, this young woman in the green sleeves cried, tears flowing down her face.”
Feelings of isolation easily overwhelm those displaced from their homes due to conflicts. In the world’s most isolated refugee and internally displaced people (IDP) camps located in South Sudan’s Maban County, it’s easy to imagine that the world has forgotten about you.
Nancy, an aid worker who visited the camps to prepare for the South Sudan Relief Aid 2018 delivery of food, shared:
“I was talking to the Koma people in the IDP camp, telling them that I had been in Dajo, their home, back in 2001-2004 doing medical clinics. I told them I had not forgotten them, but that I thought of them often and had always hoped to come back to see them again. As I talked, this young woman in the green sleeves cried, tears flowing down her face. I learned through a translator that she had been through our clinics as a girl and her heart was touched that she had been remembered and someone came to see her in her distress.”
Together, we can bring hope to those who feel forgotten. Let them know they are remembered by giving today.
