South Sudanese Refugees in Uganda

Simon, a refugee from South Sudan, poses for a portrait outside his tent in the Palorinya refugee settlement, Adjumani district, northern Uganda. Simon’s son was killed during the violence that erupted in July. Simon traveled to the border using a motorbike driver, while the daughter-in-law and the children traveled on foot. Now a refugee, Simon lost his right leg after stepping on a land mine in 2005.
