I reunify children with their families in South Sudan. With this new app, my job has just become a lot easier.

My name is Silvia and I’m a Child Protection specialist. I’ve worked across many countries and emergencies over my 8 years with Save the Children, and through this time my focus has been on giving vulnerable children the best chance to survive and thrive. It’s demanding, but incredible, work.

From the moment I boarded the flight to Bentiu in northern South Sudan, I knew it was going to be an emotional journey. I was part of a team travelling to meet five children who had been separated from their mother for nearly half a decade. I knew it would be special, but I didn’t realise how much it would affect me.
