Christ the Redeemer

Members of the Refugee Olympic Team including Paulo Amotun and Yiech Biel enjoy a visit to Rio’s famous statue of Christ the Redeemer. Amotun and Biel were both forced to flee their homes in southern Sudan due to the civil war that tore the country apart, before finding their way to the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, home to more than 179,000 displaced people.
