John Bul Dau: Lost Boys Go Back to Sudan

INFORUM’s 21st Century Visionary Award

This program is postponed
John Bul Dau, Founder and President, The John Dau Foundation; 2008 World Economic Forum Young Global Leader; Former Lost Boy of Sudan

At 13, Dau became one of the 27,000 orphaned lost boys of Sudan. He fled one of the worst civil wars in near history, walked for 3 months and survived starvation and disease to come to the United States. Today, the former Lost Boy leads the global community in a fight to transform Sudan’s health care. After his ordeal, he raised the $1,000,000 needed to build a medical clinic in his home village. His work inspired business and nonprofit leaders worldwide to help him create the John Dau Foundation for sustainable health care for all men, women and children in south Sudan. Dau has been named a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader in 2008 and was the subject of the award-winning documentary God Grew Tired of Us. Join us as we honor Dau with INFORUM's 21st Century Visionary Award for opening the world’s eyes to the Sudanese health-care crisis we may not have seen.
