From DR Congo to South Sudan, this single mother of nine endured the odds for her children
“I carried some of my children on my back and some luggage on my head. My uncle helped me carry the rest of them”, says Marie. You can only imagine what a mother can endure for her children’s sake. Back in 2008, 42-year old Marie Ferete walked for three days from her village in Duru in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to seek refuge in Makpandu Refugee Camp in neighboring Western Equatoria State in South Sudan.
