One of the most powerful things for me on this trip was seeing the arrival of refugees at the settlement where people come to register. This was maybe the first time people had experienced being safe since they had left South Sudan. There was hope in their eyes, especially in the eyes of the kids we met.
Any situation that you're in, if it doesn't affect you emotionally, I think there's something wrong. The trick is to not let your emotions get the better of you.
I always try to find hope when I'm taking photos. I found that Oxfam is giving people this hope that there is a better future. They're not saying everything's going to be fine tomorrow or the next day or next week, but what they are doing is sowing the seeds of hope that will eventually flourish.
We met one lady called Sarah (pictured) who has definitely found a sense of purpose. She was a jeweller in South Sudan, and Oxfam was investing in materials and training - just giving people the step up they need to get their businesses going again. She made these beautiful necklaces and I bought some for my daughters. As I was getting back in the Oxfam truck, I saw her go straight to the little stall and use that money to buy drinks for her kids. I thought, 'There you go, that's a perfect example of what Oxfam wants to build here'.
Another refugee, David (pictured), had built an amazing vegetable garden. Oxfam is providing water there, and it was incredible - he had every vegetable you could imagine somewhere on his plot. Uganda has tried to make people feel welcome and is allowing them to trade and build a business. David was just one example of someone who's decided to make the most of the opportunity he's been given.
One girl approached me and asked if we could help her get back to school. It hits you like a steam train. If there's one motivation to do something, it's to make sure these kids can get back into school and can continue their education. That's really what will give them their future, and they can't be denied that.
