St. Peter Claver's own former "Lost Boy of Sudan", Dut Tong is founder and President of the Akoch Atong Village Project foundation. On March 3, 2017, Dut departed on a two month Mission, a trip that took 3 flights, a bus, and a long walk down a dirt road to his remote village. He brought a Bible, over 300 Rosaries from the Children's Rosary Ministry, school supplies, and funds to complete the village school, all of these donated through St. Peter Claver Parish. The goal for 2017 was to raise funds for a sustainable crop expert to ease extreme famine.
