A Sudanese boy holds his younger brother after arriving at the Yida refugee camp two days earlier July 6, 2012 in Yida, South Sudan. Yida refugee camp grows each day and now has swollen to 64,317, as the refugees continue to flee from South Kordofan in Sudan. The numbers of refugees arriving from North Sudan vary from 500 to 1,000 a day. Many new arrivals have walked from 3 to 5 days to reach the camp, most without food.
