Walk Raises Money For The Lost Boys' Village

June 13, 2012, 8:26 AM by Austin Hoffman

Walk Raises Money For The Lost Boys' Village
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Wednesday morning, dozens of people in Sioux Falls came together to help a war torn village in South Sudan. That's the village of a group known as the Lost Boys who now live in Sioux Falls.

The money raised during the morning walk-a-thon will be used to buy a truck for their home village and bring educational opportunities and medical resources there. 

The walk is symbolic of the 1,000 mile walk the Lost Boys and Lost Girls made to safety when their village was attacked during civil war.

Moses Joknhial II is one of the Lost Boys who is now working to help his village.  Watch Joknhial's story on KELOLAND.com.

You can also help by sending donations to the Episcopal Diocese of South Dakota at 500 S. Main, Sioux Falls, SD 57104.
