Sad news from South Sudan: John’s Aunt Albina Auma has passed away in Pajok on Monday 10th December 2012. She will be buried in Pajok. Albina was the first-born in her family and Lino’s older sister. I do not have a good picture of her. The two pictures here show her. She is the lady with the blue skirt.
More background from John “ALBINA AUMA my aunt, she is Lino’s elder sister. This was the woman whom we met with those of Lino in Pajok last December and she was taking care of Linda, Fiona, Sunday and the girl left behind when her mother (Laker Grace also Albina’s daughter) died while giving her birth….in late 2009.
Albina is the first in Lino’s profile and she is the only Aunt to us. She is the mother of Okeny Charles whom you supported his education.
It is Pereji who was Lino’s mother-in law and my grand mother but Albina was my aunt.”
Update on 12th December: All the children, plus Lino and Florence hope to travel from Kampala up to Pajok for the burial. For all the younger children, this will be the first time they have seen their home town. This is because they were born in Kiryandongo refugee camp in Northern Uganda.
