Dowla Barik, 22, poses for a portrait in Doro refugee camp, Maban County, South Sudan on August 5th, 2012.  Several months before, Dowla and her six children fled from their village of Gabanit in Sudan's Blue Nile State after numerous bombing raids forced them from their home...The most important object that Dowla was able to bring with her is the wooden pole balanced over her shoulder, with which she carried her six children during the 10-day journey from Gabanit to South Sudan.  At times, the children were too tired to walk, forcing her to carry two on either side...Note: Pictured refugees hold the most important single item which they carried with them from Blue Nile.  The photographer's intent is to follow up and complete a matching series in several months to see what the most important item in their new lives is.
