Amuna Jaffa, 30, poses for a portrait in Yusuf Batil refugee camp in Maban County, South Sudan on August 6th, 2012.  Aerial bombardment forced Amuna , her husband and four children, to flee their home in Jaw Village, in Sudan's Blue Nile State, four months before this photograph was taken...The most important object that Amuna was able to bring with her is the pan balanced atop her head, with which she was able to feed her children during the family's journey from Jaw to the South Sudanese border...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.
