The Father of the Lost Boys

December 1, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

With author Yuot A. Alaak.

During the Second Sudanese Civil War, thousands of South Sudanese boys were displaced from their villages or orphaned in attacks from northern government troops. Many became refugees in Ethiopia.

In 1989, teacher and community leader Mecak Ajang Alaak assumed care of the Lost Boys in a bid to protect them from becoming child soldiers.

So began a four year journey from Ethiopia to Sudan and on to the safety of a Kenyan refugee camp. Together they endured starvation, animal attacks and the horrors of landmines and aerial bombardment.

Hear the extraordinary true story of a man who never ceased to believe that the pen is mightier than the gun in the words of his own son, Western Australian writer, Yuot A. Alaak.

This book will be available for purchase.
