Happy Birthday Lost Boys

In the late 1980’s, tens of thousands of Sudanese boys were forced from their homes by a devastating civil war between North and South Sudan. Without parents or a home to call their own, they became known as the Lost Boys.

With the help of organizations like the International Rescue Committee, several refugees were able to resettle in the US. With no birth records, all Lost Boys were assigned January 1 as their official birthday.

So, Happy Birthday Lost Boys – you and your story have not been forgotten. Additionally, your home, Sudan, has not been forgotten.

They Poured Fire on Us From the Sky, by Judy A. Bernstein, is a fascinating book about the remarkable journey of three Lost Boys from Sudan to the US. To learn more, click here.
