What peace means to South Sudan

South Sudan, 5 years after becoming independent, is facing an acute humanitarian crisis due to an ongoing conflict. Security, growth, freedom... Peace means different things across this vast country. Oxfam asked people across the country what peace means to them, hoping to show that the only way to address this crisis is to end the violence.
