Transcript of APHG Migration
Pull: Refuge in camps, religious freedom and rest, political protection. Gravity Model The Lost Boys of Sudan follow Ravenstein's migration law of relocating short distances. Most Lost Boys migrated to the nearest refuge camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. Ravenstein's law of migrants heading to major economic activity centers is defied by a majority (8,500) of the Sudanese that migrated to the U.S. moving to Omaha, Nebraska. Intervening obstacles The Lost Boys faced many obstacles including dehydration, starvation, sickness, and attack from enemy soldiers and wild animals. One major obstacle was Ethiopia's newly elected government who banned the Lost Boys, forcing them to re-cross their war torn country and seek refuge in northwest Kenya. Attitudes Toward Immigrants Sudanese migrants have faced many hardships to be in a safe country, and many were unable to overcome the obstacles they faced. Attitudes toward the migrants have been for the most part well-meaning but that cannot overcome their sense of isolation and detachment from their culture. Sources Wikipedia

They moved to this particular place to be with others from their country and of their culture. For some girls resettling in the U.S. was difficult because they had already been placed in a temporary home with another family. The U.S. government saw them not as orphaned refugees but as having a home, making them ineligible for the resettling process. *arrows not drawn to scale Some lost boys beginning their journey to Ethiopia (Left), the book War Child, written by Emmanuel Jal (Middle), and a migration map of Sudan (Right). The most important thing about Sudan's Lost Boys migration is that millions were killed and even more left without food, family, or shelter. This should encourage us to take action against abusive governments and help those who cannot help themselves.
