Returning to Sudan

A very good story about a Sudanese man who left Bor with his family when he was 10, stayed in Pochalla for about 6 months, and then moved to Pinyudo for 3 years. From there, his story looks like the Lost Boy story, except he was never resettled to the US, and in November 2007, at age 29, returned to Bor with his family.

What’s particularly interesting here is that it describes whole families moving out of the Bor area to Pochalla–different than the typical Lost Boy story. Pinyudo, I have read, had 40,000 or more refugees, about half of them unattended minors.
