After fleeing war, some Lost Boys of Sudan settled in Burlington, but they did not forget their home.
In South Sudan, 2,000 kids die from malaria each day and the maternal mortality rate is the highest in the world. Access to health care is a problem. So former Lost Boys in Vermont formed the Sudan Development Foundation to help provide health care through a new center, and the group is getting help spreading the word from students in South Burlington.
Peter Keny is with the Sudan Development Foundation known as SUDEF. Nora Hill is a sophomore at the Vermont Commons school. They appeared on The :30 to tell us more about the group and the effort to spread the word. Watch the video for more.
