THE STORY:

One of the Lost Boys of South Sudan, Jok Ngor came to Boston, MA in 2001. He started working as a doorman/bellman/concierge in 2001. Jok is one of the most reliable, honest, hard-working, wonderful people you will ever meet! While he has taken such good care of residents in all of the buildings he has worked, now, he also takes care of a wife and two small children. Jok's salary is the only financial support his family has. Due to an injury he sustained in his ankle while running from war in South Sudan, Jok has been in constant pain since 1988. Even after the injury Jok has walked around (first in Kenya and then the U.S.) with a smile on his face --all while feeling like a needle is inside his ankle and foot. Jok is finally hoping to gain some relief of this pain with surgery to replace the ligament attached to his ankle. However, the surgery's recovery is estimated to take between three-six months. During that time, Jok will receive short-term disability, but these payments will not fully cover what he typically earns in salary. As the family breadwinner, this is very concerning to Jok. Jok is concerned about not only taking care of his family in Boston, but also taking care of those who are still living in South Sudan whom he supports as well! Please join me in helping someone who gives so much to so many others. Jok deserves to live without pain, and deserves to recover from surgery without fear of not being able to take care of his loved ones both in the U.S. and South Sudan. Thank you so much for your contribution to Jok and his family!
