Another beneficiary, Nelson Ngor Lual who studies at Aweil National Secondary School, said he was grateful that the foundation thought about the poor like him and also heartily thanked them for the gift.

“I am very happy for the help to the poor people and those with special needs, but now I am praying for God to bless state minister of education, Santino Bol Akok, to continue coordinating such assistance from partners,” Ngor said.

Meanwhile, the Care Club Foundation representative, William Bol Akot, said the scholastic items were provided to encourage vulnerable students to keep in school so that they can have a bright future despite the challenges they face.
