"Crossing the River Gillo"

Painting by Mac Anyat, aged 17, Sudanese, Kakuma refugee camp

"It was terrible. People shouting, screaming: 'Run, swim, go, go!' Where was my friend? He was taken by the river. Nobody was anybody's friend. How can you be a friend when people are shooting at you and the river is going whoosh and you have to go in that river? The bang, bang and whoosh, whoosh made my mind go dead and I don't remember who was there, who died, what happened."
