In conflict there are always forgotten heroes, men and women who work hard for the good of others. Such is the case with 37 year old Philip. Being an internally displaced person has not person, Phillip has not let that stop his desire to earn a living and provide for his family through hard work and passion towards what he does.

The father of three works as a miller at one of the milling machines which are contracted by SAADO to provide milling services to residents of the POCs in Juba. The program has not only made milling easier and safer for the IDPs but has also created employment to other POC residents like Phillip, who used to be a pale shadow not knowing how he would provide for his family. “I can now provide food on the table for my wife and two daughters said a beaming Phillip.

“My dream however is for this war to end so that I can go back to my homestead and open my own milling business using the experienced I have gathered here” he added. Philip has not only become a hero to his family but also to the community in the POC who greatly value his services.

“It’s because of people like Philip who work in the mills that we no-longer have to walk long distances out of the POC to get milling services” said Marian one of the beneficiaries of the SAADO milling voucher program.


The SAADO milling voucher program reaches to over 20 000 people in the POCs however recent statistics have shown that a total of 217, 969 people are seeking protection in POCs around South Sudan.
