14 Kakuma Kids
Abraham Atem was just a boy when he arrived at Kakuma, a Swahili word meaning "nowhere," and also the name of the refugee camp in northwestern Kenya that would become his home. His parents had been massacred by northern Sudanese soldiers, two casualties among an eventual two million who would forfeit their lives in Sudan's civil war. Fleeing for his life along with thousands of other orphaned children who are now known as Sudan's "Lost Boys," Abraham walked more than 1,000 miles to reach safety in Kakuma. It was 1992.
