Elias – Growing up in a Refugee Camp

Elias was born in a refugee camp in Uganda after his parents fled the civil war in South Sudan. He describes what it was like after his father passed away and the struggle to survive his family endured during this time. He lived in the refugee camp and received his primary education until peace was declared in 2005 when his mother returned to South Sudan.

Elias is now living in South Sudan with his family, and working as a lecturer at Bishop Gwynne College.
