Haram Yakub, 25, sits on a hospital bed holding her infant daughter to her breast. After more than a week of being unable to keep anything down due to diarrhoea, 11-month-old Nancy begins to feed.
Watching Nancy rally in South Sudan’s Yusif Batil camp is a relief. But Yakub’s trauma remains. It is a fear so powerful that she can only remember little things; that she was once a farmer in her hometown of Jam in Sudan’s Blue Nile state. She remembers that Nancy has been receiving treatment for eight days in the hospital’s stabilization centre.
