In the long run, Lost boys were positively affected by being able to go to the United States. During the second Sudan civil war in 1987, between Northern Sudan and Southern Sudan, many boys were separated from their families because they had to flee to avoid slavery, death, or being forced to fight. About 20,000 boys, mostly 6 or 7 years old, had to flee. They walked thousands of miles to find safety. Over the journey, thousands of boys lost their lives, but some boys survived and made it to refugee camps. These boys are called Lost boys. “UNHCR recommended approximately 3,600 of them for resettlement in the United States and the U.S. State Department concurred," (“International Rescue Committee”).

The crisis in western Sudan has grown out of several separate but intersecting conflicts. The first is a civil war between the Islamist, Khartoum-based national government and two rebel groups based in Darfur: the Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement. The rebels, angered by Darfur's political and economic marginalization by Khartoum, first appeared in February 2003. The government, however, did not launch a major counteroffensive until April 2003, after the rebels pulled off a spectacular attack on a military airfield, destroying several aircraft and kidnapping an air force general in the process. Khartoum responded by arming irregular militia forces and directing them to eradicate the rebellion. The militias set out

South Sudan became an independent nation in 2011 and has had internal conflicts ever since its formation. South Sudan has the second lowest literacy rate in the world with only 27 % of its citizens over age 15 able to read.

Due of the incompetence of the former president, South Sudan ultimately decided to split from Sudan.
