Al Haj Mattar Musu, 27, poses for a portrait in Jamam refugee camp in Maban County, South Sudan on August 12th, 2012...Driven out by war, Al Haj travelled from his village of Lahmar in Sudan's Blue Nile State to seek refuge in South Sudan.  During his journey, he was ill with malaria, making it an even more difficult process...The most important thing that Al Haj was able to bring with him is the whip that he holds in this photograph.  He says that without the whip, he wouldn't have been able to keep together his herd of 50 goats, and he would now be destitute...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.
