(Al Jazeera) – Seven-year-old Nyajima still thinks about when the soldiers came to her village. The fighting had been getting closer each day. “Many people who lived in our village were killed,” she says. “The soldiers stole all the food and left us with nothing except our saucepans, so we took them and started to walk to the POC.” This was the Protection of Civilian Camp run by the UN peacekeeping force UNMISS. “It was a long walk and one night we slept outside on the way. This dress I am wearing is the only dress that I have.” Nyajima is just one of thousands of children to have been displaced by the on-going war in South Sudan: a recent report from UNICEF estimated the number at 900,000 since the conflict between forces loyal to President Salva Kiir and those who support the once vice-president, Riek Machar began in 2013.
