This is a great story of redemption and persistence told by a courageous young man

Too many young boys suffered extraordinary deprivation as forced child- soldiers during the brutal Sudanese civil war. Francis Deng was one – his physical suffering compounded by the tragic deaths of his mother and younger siblings. Many boys died. Miraculously, Francis survived.

His harrowing story as one of the
‘Lost Boys’, redemption through
the opportunities Australia offered, contributions to his adopted country, and support for those within this community facing transition and cultural challenges, is important and gripping.
