Lual Mayen is a former refugee from South Sudan. His parents fled Bor during the Second Sudanese Civil War. Lual was born along a 200-mile journey to a place of refuge. He built his first video game in a refugee camp and was supported by Jesuit Refugee Service. He is now the CEO of Junub games, and has been recognized for his work around the world.

Because JRS saw potential in Lual, he was able to pursue his dream and now gives back speaking about the power of video games for peace and starting a foundation to help refugee children like him.

That's something that JRS was able to do for me - to walk beside me and believe in me

If you see potential in refugees like Lual, consider a gift to JRS this December. Your gift will help us create more opportunities for more refugees.
