On a warm October evening in Geneva, Milly Lagu plays with ducks swimming by the shores of the River Rhone. She seems relaxed and unburdened, after a stressful ordeal during which she shared her story with an August gathering at the Palais des Nations. The leaves on the trees have taken on autumn hues.
Knowing the soldiers would soon return for her two eldest sons, Milly and her children fled the village of Opari, South Sudan, in December 2013, with the screams of neighbours and sounds of gunfire still ringing in their ears.
Tears tumbled down the cheeks of 13-year-old Hauwa Madu as she recalled the death of her father three years ago at the hands of one of the world's most feared terrorist groups.
Nominations are now open for the Women on the Move Award 2017. Do you know a woman who should be celebrated for their outstanding contribution to the community?
