Ten year-old Ahmed Sadik poses for a portrait in Jamam refugee camp in Maban County, South Sudan on August 7th, 2012.  Continued aerial bombardment forced Ahmed and his family to flee their home in Taga Village, in Sudan's Blue Nile State, seven months before this photograph was taken...The most important thing that Ahmend was able to bring with him is "Kako," his pet monkey.  Kako and Ahmed made the 5-day journey from Taga to the South Sudanese border together in the back of a truck.  Ahmed says that he couldn't imagine life without his best friend Kako, and that the most difficult thing about leaving Blue Nile was having to leave his family's donkey behind...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.
