The above graphic was published recently by Aljazeera. I have just added Pajok (the home town of our South Sudanese students) and Bweyale (where we rent a house as a holiday base). As you can see, the main impact of the famine and emergency on AREP is indirect, due to the flow of new refugees caused by the war in South Sudan.
Juba to Pajok is 188 km
Pajok to Bweyale is 285 km
Bweyale to Kampala is 221 km
These two youngsters were snapped at their school. Disney gets everywhere!
This Marabou Stork is saying, “AREP’s Big Give Christmas Challenge target has been reached!”
Thank-you on behalf of the children to everyone for your generosity.
You can still donate but your donation won’t be matched.

PS The Marabou Stork (Leptoptilos crumenifer) is one of the ugliest birds, but it is a magnificent flyer. Its wingspan can reach 7 feet. This one was catching thermals above Kampala last week.
