Angelina Monday (32) with two of her daughters in their home built in the Bididbidi Refugee Settlement. The family fled South Sudan in 2017 after the area where they lived was attacked by government forces and several family members were killed. After hiding in the bush with her children for several weeks they eventually managed to find a safe passage and escaped on foot into Uganda. Angelina says she has no plans to return to South Sudan. Instead, she will work hard to build them all a better future in their new home.
The family crossed the border from war-torn South Sudan in 2017 and like most incoming refugees were allocated a small piece of agricultural land, 30 x 30 metres, to build a home and to cultivate crops. Their new home is located in one of the world's largest refugee camps, the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement, which has been praised as a model for the ethical treatment of refugees.
