  • Welcome to Modern World

    $30.00$60.00
    I saw a computer for the first time when I came to America. It was then that I learned that most people know something about the world through the internet. I thought of my family and friends back in Sudan who don’t know that the rest of the world is connected like this. It gave me new hope that people could learn about the crisis in my country. I dream that today’s technology will help free southern Sudan.
  • Unforgettable Moment

    $30.00$60.00
    Civil war broke out in southern Sudan. Not only were soldiers firing guns, but there was bombing from MIGs, helicopters, and tanks. Everyone was running away from the village except for parents with small children and the elderly. People were dying all around. Even the animals fled the country because of the war.
  • Two Worlds Together

    $30.00$60.00
    Civilians of South Sudan are facing serious challenges due to the long war and its slow recovery. It is my great hope that one step at a time will bring a positive change to more than one generation. This painting portrays the outstanding work of the people of Columbus and the rest of the Buckeye State – those who raise their hands to offer services and financial support, give of their time, thoughts and prayers, and so much more, in order to impact the lives of vulnerable people in Piol village. Columbus is making a difference.
  • The Last Memory

    $30.00$60.00
    My last memory is of my beautiful Dinka yard. I was in the yard with my cattle when war broke out in my village. When I heard the sounds of bombs and gunfire, I fled and never saw my family or my home again.
  • Surviving on Wild Plants

    $30.00$60.00
    We did not have any food to eat because relief agencies were forbidden access to this area by the government of Sudan. We ate wild leaves, fruit, and roots – things we had not tried to eat before, just to sustain ourselves.
  • Struggling with lion

    $30.00$60.00
    During the journey, we encountered lions along the way that attacked us. When we saw a lion, we would come together in tight groups. We would yell, scream, and throw sticks to scare the lion away. If we did not have time to organize into groups, our only option was to run for the trees.
  • Shooting in Magoos

    $30.00$60.00
    Thousands of us had just crossed the Kosingara desert, and we were finally close to Kenya. We had come so far and didn’t have the energy to look for a safe place to sleep, so we just lay down randomly in a dried-up riverbed to sleep. Sometime in the night government militia ambushed us while we slept out there in the open. They fired guns on us. Many were fallen.
  • Lion Chase

    During the journey, we encountered lions along the way that attacked us. When we saw a lion, we would come together in tight groups. We would yell, scream, and throw sticks to scare the lion away. If we did not have time to organize into groups, our only option was to run for the trees.
  • Journey of Hope #1

    $30.00$60.00
    After we had already spent so many years running from the enemy, we were forced once more to run, this time to Kenya, where the enemy was not allowed. It was a three-day walk to the border. People had no shoes, and the road was very rocky. We walked non-stop. When I saw that sign welcoming us to Kenya I hoped we were finally safe.
  • Journey of Hope #3

    $30.00$60.00
    When we ran away from the lion, we ran for a tree for safety. At some point, we realized that a tree was no longer our best option because leopards lived among the branches and elephants tore down big trees.
  • Imperceptible Misery

    $30.00$60.00
    This work continues to serve as a reminder to me about the struggle and misfortune of my fellow friends and brothers as a result of war. It embodies the over-shadowed and unseen suffering of the past and the passion I see in the eyes of friends and viewers today – as if they were with me during those days
  • Crossing the Gilo River

    $30.00$60.00
    We were forced out of Ethiopia and had to cross the River Gilo back to Sudan. Enemy troops were closing in. The river had currents so strong that we could not safely cross. When we heard gunshots, we realized the troops were going to kill us all and that we had no choice but to jump in the river. Only half of us survived the gunshots, crocodiles, and strong currents. Crossing the Gilo was the longest moment of my life. When I got to the other side, I just ran.
