When he was in the hospital, he went into a day dream, and saw a vision that revealed to him the sufferings of the people of Southern Sudan during the two decades of civil war; and its new blooming picture of economic development after the civil war. In order to fulfill the dreams to become a reality, the Young Shepherds’ first attempt was the shipping of 185 pieces of used clothing from Cairo-Egypt to the needy people in Mundri East County, Western Equatoria State, South Sudan-Africa in the year 1997.
