As bombs fell on a Sudanese village, an anonymous hand reached out of the chaos and saved 3-year-old Peter Ter.

Juba in the Making
There are people who have had their head put to the ground so that you can raise your head up high.

There are people who have lost their eyes so you can see.
There are people who have been imprisoned so you can live freely.
There are people who have died so you can live.”
