We are delighted to receive a drawing from Malek Academy in South Sudan. Thanks so much to Ben Tegg, director of Derek Chappell Foundation who put us in touch with Ador Riak Nyiel acting Principal for Malek Academy. This drawing tells a story and we very much wish South Sudan and all Countries a very Peaceful future. Special thanks also to their Student who has created this piece for the Quilt.
South Sudan gained independence from Sudan on 9 July 2011 as the outcome of a 2005 peace deal.Fantastic to have this new Nation included.
