Dukan* lives with her family in a Protection of Civilians camp (POC) in Juba, South Sudan. These camps were established to offer civilians protection and refuge when fleeing from conflict.
Dukan is cooking Walwal (its name in Nuer) which is a grain a bit like millet and is cooked with water. She tells us that this, along with Kisra (‘paper food’), is what they tend to eat. We are catching them for breakfast.
Typically the family eat two meals a day (breakfast and dinner), and for dinner, they eat something that is similar to Walwal but is not cooked in water – it is soaked instead – called Akof.
