A note from Bol 

How we will use the money:

1. We are now involved in searching for and attaining the 4 abducted children, my nieces and nephews: Makuei (2), Abiei (8), Ajoh (6), and Anyieth (4). I am leaving for South Sudan next week to meet with organizations and individuals on the ground. 

2. Once we recover the children we will need to be able to care for and support them as they are now orphans. Both of their parents, my brother and sister-in-law, were murdered in last week's attack of Kolnyang.

It's Giving Tuesday! Please see the message below from Mangok Bol:

Dear Friends, we would like to share with you the pictures of the girls. This is over a year after they were returned to us last year. The girls and their brother who is not in the pictures are transitioning back to normal life well. In the pictures are Ajoh Makech(with her friend in Nairobi, Kenya) and Anyieth Makech in Koboko Uganda. Thank you very much for being part of their recovery!
Nevertheless, we're still pushing every single day for the return of their sister, Abiei Makech who is still being held by her captors.

Any contributions will go towards the rescue of Abiei as well as raising those that are now reunited with their their extended family.

A note from Mangok Bol:

Dear Friends,

First and foremost, I wanted to say thank you, for all the support. Your generosity has had an enormous impact on securing the release of my 2 nieces and my nephew. My family and I will forever be grateful for this. As seen in the pictures posted here, I just returned from my visit to South Sudan and had an emotional reunion with my nieces and nephew. So far, 3 of 4 children are back with the family. On a positive note, my recent returned niece has confirmed that her sister who is still missing is alive and that they were together but with different captors. We are continuing to work diligently to find and rescue her.

As always, thank you all for everything.

Best,
Mangok Bol

"I wanted to share with you another positive development on my nieces and nephew. I remember I told you over the summer that one of the 4 children by David Yau Yau was being contested by my family and another family. My niece and the father who was contesting the child were sent for DNA testing in early September. The results were announced this past Tuesday in Bor, Jonglei State by the court. The DNA results have shown him as my nephew, Makuei. He was the youngest, 1.5yrs, of my late brother's 4 abducted children. He is now about 3years old. Everybody in my family is celebrating. My mom can't still believe she has 2 of her 4 grandchildren back. I've attached the picture of the my nephew, Makuei Makech Mach."
