In this summer bonus episode, we talked to Salva Dut, the founder of Water for South Sudan. Salva was one of the Sudanese “Lost Boys” and was the basis for the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. Salva traces his journey for us, talks about the effects of clean water on a community, and discusses his vision for the future of South Sudan and refugees around the globe.
