A Child Escape

Presented by South Sudanese success story - Francis Deng

"Many young boys suffering extraordinary  deprivation as a forced child-soldiers in South Sudan, Francis was one. His physical suffering was magnified by the murder of his parents, brother and sisters.  Miraculously, Francis made it to a refugee camp, where a diplomat saw potential."
 
"Several years later Francis graduated from  Wollongong University. Today, he contributes  productively to his adopted country through his  employment. He also contributes by helping others within the South Sudanese community who find the transition challenging – most recently as Secretary of the South Sudanese Support Group."
 
"Francis’ harrowing story as a child-soldier, his  redemption through the opportunity Australia offered, his contribution to his adopted country, and his support of those within this community facing challenges is important and gripping.

It is a story that needs to be told."
