Ezra and Nicolas, from Alero, South Sudan

Three year-old Ezra and his baby brother Nicolas are from Alero, South Sudan. After renewed fighting broke out in their village and their uncle was killed, their parents seized them and ran. It took the family three days on foot to arrive at the Ugandan border. They hadn't eaten for two days, before reaching Imvepi reception centre and receiving this high energy biscuit from the World Food Programme.

Their mum Mary says: "We feel good to be in Uganda. Here it is safe so we can rest and eat now."
