Fleeing South Sudan

Fleeing South Sudan – ‘My mother was abducted, my brother killed, I was raped and now I am pregnant’.

Tears roll down Eva’s face as she recalls the moment she was raped at gunpoint in war-torn South Sudan, while she and her sister tried to flee to Uganda.

Her agony does not stop as she speaks about her pregnancy, something that the white-and-pink dress she is wearing fails to conceal.

Eva is 16 and she is among more than one million children who have fled South Sudan since the country descended into civil war in 2013.
