Rose was eight-and-a-half months pregnant and just widowed when she had to run from armed men.
She and her children were fleeing the violence that has overwhelmed South Sudan since December 2013. They are just a few of the 1.3 million people who have been displaced from their homes so far.
Her labour pains started when she was running. Rose gave birth by the roadside as her four children looked on, terrified.
Women stopped and helped her. Baby Johanes arrived screaming but healthy and strong, into a world that is anything but. Rose's husband had died just a few days earlier, killed in front of his family as they tried to escape the fighting.
Before all this, Rose's husband had a good job and was able to provide for his family. She says they had a simple, clean and happy home and were well fed.
Now Johanes sleeps soundly next to Rose, nestled in a plastic bowl. He is two weeks old and still looks healthy, but she is afraid for his future.
"My breast milk is dry, and I can't feed him properly. At night, I can't sleep because I am so hungry. I try to reassure the children, but I am scared," says Rose.
South Sudan is also in the grip of a severe food crisis, driven largely by the conflict. More than 3.7 million people need emergency food and parts of the country are at high risk of famine.
People like Rose and her baby Johanes will be the most vulnerable to severe malnutrition - it is estimated that up to 50,000 children under five years old may die by the end of 2014 if treatment is not available soon.
World Vision is working to deliver life-saving food aid, as well as pre-positioning aid supplies for the months to come and helping communities to recover their livelihoods.
