Click on the link to see more photos that tell the story of many Southern Sudanese traveling back from living, some for a long period of time, in the North. The people are either transported back to their villages or given temporary housing for a few days.

Many have traveled far and long to arrive; from the North’s capital, Khartuom, to the South’s proposed capital, Juba, it can take up to a month.

So far, there are 3.4 million people who are registered to vote in the upcoming referendum. Please continue to keep this situation in your thoughts and prayers.
