AAUW Waukegan Area Branch members, joined by members of two chapters of Delta Gamma Nu as well as Deerfield Area and Lake Forest-Lake Bluff AAUW guests, were charmed and horified as four of the 4,000 Lost Boys of Sudan told their stories of survival during the Second Sudan Civil War and their lives in the Chicago area since being relocated to the US about 10 years ago.

To learn more about the plights of these men and their attempts to give back to their homeland, and/or to donate to their cause, please visit the following sites: or or or
