In December 2005 in southern Sudan, a boy drinks water from the Akuem River, near the village of Malual Kon in Bahr el Ghazal State. Only about one-third of the population has access to safe drinking water, and the threat of water-borne disease has increased as towns swell due to the return of displaced people and refugees following decades of civil war. - 2005 © UNICEF/NYHQ2005-1987/Georgina Cranston -

After reading about the current events in Sudan I found this to be so extremely moving. Walk a mile in another more unfortunate mans shoes, literally. How blessed we all are to even own several pair of shoes and SO much more!!!-The Farmhouse Porch--- Dec. 2013-Threadbare Shoes of Sudanese Refugees Tell Stories of Long and Harrowing Journeys Shannon Jensen


A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about a girl in Sudan in 2008 and a boy in Sudan in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours' walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. #TeacherResources
