An orphanage school established at Malekalel, Aweil South County, Northern Bahr El Ghazal State, has enrolled 600 children, and among these, 117 are entitled to free feeding.

The initiative is being administered by the Word Alive Christian Center with support from CYDAI-organization Mama Amath Dau, Mama Helen Luwal Skrzypczak in the Western world, and the Ministry of Education in South Sudan.

In a testimonial statement, the founder of the orphanage in Malekalel, Pastor John Wek, said that despite the challenges encountered, they are excited to see the children not only learning how to read and write but also adapting to positive social behaviors.

“We are having the testimony of many kids that I took from Aweil town to this village,” he said.

Wek excitedly said that abandoned children have forgotten their first behavior and have adopted the good life in an orphanage.

“If I look back and see how far the Lord has brought me, I’m more grateful to him than any other person in this World. We are educating 600 children now and feeding 117 kids by the grace of God,” he said.

The pastor emphasized that these kids are the future leaders of South Sudan, adding that they are thankful to God and everyone who has contributed toward this orphanage.

Please, if you have kids who are abandoned on the streets, we are here for you. We shall be there for those kids and teach them the word of God and educate them free,” Wek called.

A resident of Malekalel town, a place where the orphanage school has been established, Madam Akuol Garang, attested that the school offers free educational services.

“Even children who are not orphans get free educational services here. We in Maker Aliel village here are happy” she said “The school has also brought us a hand pump or borehole”.

Akuol said it is not only for the free school services; the residents are also benefiting from other additional services.

“We fetch water here in that water facility. So, we are praying for God to continue this support and bring services,” Akuol Garang said.
