The Lost Boys of Sudan
They escaped the horrors of war in the Sudan by separating from their families at a young age. Now people call them the Lost Boys. But a number of them are finding themselves in Kentucky. Louisville Life meets some of these new immigrants and the people who are helping them to start new lives in America.
Katya Cengel was able to travel to Africa to produce her Lost Boys stories for the Courier-Journal through support from the International Center for Journalists. The ICM also paid for video seen in Louisville Life’s story, which was shot by Emmanual Deng Maker in Africa. Read Katya’s stories online at the C-J’s Lost Boys site.
More information about the Lost Boys in Louisville, including opportunities for support, can be found at the Sudanese Refugee Education Fund web site.
