SSFCE has worked to address some of the underlining issues affecting the community, such as low literacy and intercommunity conflict.
In 2004, Asunta Deng and Malual Deng migrated to Australia, and it was the first time they meet after 20 years when war separated them in Pannyok Twic Warrap South Sudan.
In 2008, they went back together to see their family after 21 years and meet John Mangok Kuot, a respected leader in the community. However, only two weeks after they came back to Australia, John died in an air crash on the 2nd of May 2008. Asunta and Malual decided to take on John’s legacy and work with the local community to fulfil his promise to build the school and clinic for women and children.
Since then, SSFCE has worked to address some of the underlining issues affecting the community, such as low literacy and intercommunity conflict.
