In 1987Jok Dau and Bol Aweng, two Lost Boys of Sudan, fled their village as six-year-olds, when it was attacked, bombed, and burned by government troops. While walking 1,500 miles to Ethiopia and then to Kenya, they survived attacks by government troops and wild animals, illness, and starvation. They spent fourteen years in refugee camps, then were resettled as refugees in Nashville, TN in 2001. They moved to Columbus, Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State University in 2009. They have a goal of improving maternal and child health in Piol, their village in South Sudan.
How to Help
Gifts from generous people like you will make a significant impact on the lives of people in the Piol village. The need for medical equipment and supplies is urgent. In the initial site visit in February 2010, one chief said "If you can help bring us health services, we will wait for God to bring us food". Your donation will provide maternal and child health services and hope to the impoverished village of Piol, South Sudan.
