A major challenge is getting the honey to market. The ongoing conflict in South Sudan means it has been too dangerous travelling by road. But now, increased patrols by UN peacekeepers in the Wulu area mean the roads are more secure and so trade can flourish.
Local people have more confidence to move around the area. Alice Mamur says that she “feels safe” when she sees UN peacekeepers in her area. But deeper in the forest she sometimes “get harassed by men with guns. They steal our honey, slap us, and sometimes do other things to us.”
