In 2014, Alissa first traveled to South Sudan to document the ongoing situation with Humanity United and ENOUGH.org. When waves of political instability and food insecurity resumed, Alissa and Peter returned for UNICEF to report on life for the displaced population living in camps and those fleeing hunger.
With Humanity United and UNICEF, and with distribution by the World Economic Forum, Alissa and Peter’s stories and images from South Sudan have reached audiences around the world.
Alissa and Peter also returned to Northern Uganda with 60 Minutes Australia to highlight the situation of South Sudanese refugees.
The episode aired March 19, 2017.
Exposing Hope is has created an Education Fund to support several of the South Sudanese orphans Alissa and Peter met in Uganda. Thus far, three girls are safely in an all-girls boarding school in Northern Uganda, two more will join next term, and we are working to identify new candidates via our local partners on the ground in Adjumani, Uganda.
