South Sudan became independent from Sudan on July 9, 2011, ending a long civil war that cost millions of lives and displaced millions of others in camps and in Diaspora around the world. The tragic history can be traced through the slave trade and subsequent Egyptian, British, and Arab rule prior to South Sudan winning its independence. This most diverse region, rich in natural resources, tells a story of war, resilience, and hope.
