The village of Regina is a boat trip away from the central market area in the capital of the province of Pibor. But Regina's house isn't in the same spot it was last year. Due to the flooding, she had to tear down her house and build it on a higher spot. It's not the first time. Regina: "Because we've been suffering from severe flooding for three years, I've had to move my house three times."
Although she was able to move the family house in time, the crop the family so desperately needed was lost. Regina: "The crops were about to be harvested when the floods came and washed everything away." Without being able to harvest anything, but with four small children to be fed, they looked for ways to survive. “We collected firewood to sell it on the market. But sometimes we had nothing to eat for two or three days. Once I was so hungry that I tightened my stomach with a belt to have enough strength to look for wood. I had to leave my baby alone in the house.”
