Storyboard Text

  • Salva's one friend, Marial, was gone and in the middle of lion country Salva was scared for himself, but his Uncle promised he would protect him from hungry lions that may want to drag him off while he was asleep.
  • They soon came to a river, but they didn't have any boats. They started building them with reeds and were able to cross when they finsihed making shallow canoes.
  • After they visited a mosquito-filled city they began the long journey through the Akabo desert. The water was scarce and Salva stubbed his toe on a rock and his whole toenail came off. They found people who didn't bring enough water and were dying, but they couldn't give them any of their water, or they would die too.
  • Akeer had fallen ill and Nya's family was trying to decide what to do. They could go to a doctor, but that was a long way away, or they could stay here and try letting Akeer heal on her own, which was risky.
  • They decided to go to the doctors and walked the long walk to the tent.
  • When they got there the doctors started to treat Akeer, and she began recovering in a few days. The doctor said that she should only drink clean water, but her parents didn't know if they could help that.
  • She has to drink only clean, clear water.
