Update-'Robert' in South Sudan
I've heard back from 'Robert', my journalist friend in South Sudan who is trying to evacuate his family to Uganda (see previous post below). I am working with journalists in the Kansas City area to try to come up with the funds Robert needs to take his family (wife, niece, six children) to safety. Stay tuned for more updates.
