Refugees are common in this part of the world. There is also considerable slavery in Sudan. Sudanese children can be bought for $30, according to cnn.com.

Civil war and drought are certainly part of the environment in which this dreadful life unfolds.

Check out Escape from Slavery by Francis Bok. This a first- person account of a Dinka man's ten years as a slave in northern Sudan, his escape, and journey to refuge in the United States.
