"Committed to the reunification and living enhancement of the Lost Boys of Sudan
who have made Nashville their home."
"We were forced out
Ethiopia and had to cross the
River Gilo back to
Sudan. Enemy troops were close
behind, but the river had currents so strong that we could not
cross safely. When we heard gunshots we realized that the troops
were going to kill us all and that we had no choice but to jump
in the river. Only half of us survived the gunshots, crocodiles
and strong currents. Crossing the Gilo was the longest moment of
my life. When I got to the other side, I just ran."
- 8 year old Sudanese refugee - circa 2000
“We need work. It
is a tough time for some of us. We have lost our jobs and
can’t pay our rent or buy food.”
– Manyang Jok - March 9, 2010,
President of the Nashville Lost Boys of Sudan
