Salva ended up surviving the Gilo River and become the leader of a group of boys (later on known as The Lost Boys of Sudan) and arrived at a refugee camp. This camp would fly certain sudanese people in seek of a home to America. Salva was eventually chosen, and was determined to share his story and help others in Sudan.
After all the hardships Salva had to face, he finally arrived in America and got to live with a very loving family. He also was able to build many wells to help his people in Sudan.
