History of Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls.

The Lost Boys and Girls began their journey in 1987, when their villages were attacked by Khartoum Government. 

In 1983, when civil war broke out in Sudan, twenty-seven thousand orphaned children walked a thousand miles to safety in Ethiopia. Many died from starvation, others were eaten by crocodiles and lions. After spending nearly two decades in refugee camps, a few thousand Lost Boys were granted asylum in the US.
