25-year-old Kiden is a mother of six and currently expecting her seventh child. Until last month, she and her family lived in South Sudan, but in early July, they fled to Uganda to seek refuge. The recent wave of conflict in Juba had left their house burnt to ashes, but life here hasn’t been any easier.
Kiden and her six children were recently transferred to Bidi Bidi camp in northern Uganda. I met them a week after they arrived; they were still living out in the open. The family had not been able to build a make-shift house at the newly opened refugee settlement in Yumbe district.
