Generations Affected by Decades of War in Sudan

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Almost all of the four million voters in Southern Sudan casting their votes on whether or not to secede from the North have been affected by decades of bloodshed and civil war in that country. Takeaway producer Noel King has been reporting from the ground in Southern Sudan during the preparation for the vote as well as the referendum itself. Noel shares with us the stories she's heard from people of all different generations, and how all the violence has affected their lives.

"Everybody was so skinny and the life was sucked out of them by the situation," says one young woman speaking about living during violent times. However, with so many war scars, how will southern Sudan rebuild after the historic vote?
