Words of Nyakat Chatim

40 year old Nyakat Chatim Martha is one of the occupants of Kiryandongo refugee settlement. As a group mobiliser for cluster B, she says that they feel secure for now to the extent that one can sleep with the house-door open.
‘I rushed from Sudan with nothing, but my 5 children. The war had intensified more than we expected. Life is not very easy here, but we are trying our best to make it happen. Forming groups has helped us in digging and setting up reasonable houses. Recently, our first harvest fetched us four sacks of grain which we can use to supplement the food aid. We are okay at the moment, except for the problem of inadequate water. If that is solved, we shall be very appreciative.’
