Salva, a 11 year old boy is sitting in class at school. He is daydreaming paying no attention to the teacher. He is daydreaming about playing with his brothers back home on the farm.
That must be my family over there.
Salva is in class and they hear gunshots and the kids start to get scared. The teacher tells the kids to run into the bush. Now Salva is lost and is separated from his family.
The old woman tells Salva that she is leaving to go to another village She tells him he can't stay with her any longer because it would be dangerous for him to travel with her. Also because she needs to move to a village near water and because of the fighting.
Thank you for bringing the water Iam Nya
I am happy to meet you Nya My name is Salva
Salve traveled to America to meet his new family. Also he had moved to Rochester, New York with his new family. Also he was happy to have siblings like he did back in Sudan.
Salva travels back to Southern Sudan because he got a email from his cousin. It said that his dad was in the United Nations clinic having stomach surgery. So he travels back to Sudan and finds that his father is alive and Salva was really happy to see his father.
Salva built a well with clean water in it for people who live in Sudan. Salva has drilled many wells for his people and Nuer people as well. Salva will continue to help villagers get access to clean water.
