Segerina’s son, 1 year old Peter Wanii James, was among the first patients in the cholera treatment centre (CTC) MSF opened on 24th May 2014, in Gudele 2, one of areas most affected by the cholera outbreak in Juba, the capital of South Sudan.

One day earlier, Peter had severe vomiting and diarrhea. Segerina knew it was serious, as the symptoms were the same as ones she had experienced herself some years ago when she had cholera.

Segerena immediately brought Peter to MSF’s new CTC when she heard one had been built just a few kilometers from her home in Gudele, where she lives with her two other children.
