Nakine Lochile is grateful for the food distribution saying it has saved them. They tried to plant seeds three times but without rain, the sun was too hot and scorched them. She is the fourth wife of six (her husband died a long time ago) and has five sons and two daughters. One of her sons goes to school in Kapoeta in the care of an elder brother. The girls help around the household by picking wild fruit so they cannot go to school, and her other sons are taking care of cattle, though her other animals have died. With no support from a husband, she depends on her farming. Nakine says she really appreciates the support during this period, and asks for God`s blessing, and more seeds.
