The group arrived in Aweil on Monday ready to shop but found their Cashpassport card would not work because the banks have sanctions on Sudan. The rest of the world does not seem to have recognized that South Sudan is now a separate country. They called home for some cash to be transferred but it was 4.05pm and the banks here were closed. They had to delay the shopping and find some accommodation for the night. Tuesday morning Kuol was up early but the money transfer place doesn’t open until 10.00am. They need to buy school supplies and probably every mosquito net available in Aweil. They looked for blackboards but to no avail. So now they are off to deliver text books, stationery and exercise books to Mabok school.
