Ibrahim, 11, fled his home of outer Bor fleeing 30km to cross the Unity state border into Awerial in the Lakes border crossing by boat over the Nile. He has been living under a tree with his mother amongst an estimated 70,000 refugees. His father has not come to Awerial. He has not eaten well in days and had suffered from massive diarrhoea and vomitting. Showing his photo on my camera was the first time he'd ever seen himself as an image.
