Magbola Alhadi, 20, and her three children pose for a portrait in Jamam refugee camp in Maban County, South Sudan on August 11th, 2012...Magboola and her family weathered aerial bombing raids for several months, but decided it was time to leave their village of Bofe the night that soldiers arrived and opened fire.  With her three children, she travelled for 12 days from Bofe to the town of El Fudj, on the South Sudanese border...The most important thing that Magboola was able to bring with her is the saucepan she holds in this photograph.  It wasn't the largest pot that she had in Bofe, but it was small enough she could travel with it, yet big enough to cook sorghum for herself and her three daughters (from left: Aduna Omar, 6, Halima Omar, 4, and Arfa Omar, 2) during their journey...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.
