Sudan-articleLarge

More suffering for the children of the Sudan as a new generation of Lost Boys and Girls are fleeing civil war in an African country that has been plagued with a violent history and is supposed to be following a peace agreement. Cast out by their parents who fear for their safety, these homeless children roam the country trying to avoid violent militias and the dangerous natural conditions of their land with the hopes of surviving the ongoing battle around them.

Jeffrey Gettlean’s piece “New Wave of ‘Lost Boys’ Flee Sudan’s Lingering War” in the New York Times investigates this distressing story. Reading the accounts of these children gives a clear picture of the sadness that has been forced upon them.

We don’t talk about our parents anymore. Even if we go back, we won’t find anybody.

What will the world do to help these children?
