The people of South Sudan have faced tragedy, trauma, some hope andmuch despair.  David McDonald knows this first hand and he's had the privilege of getting to know many South Sudanese first hand.  He's worked around the globe as an international news journalist, an independent multimedia producer, a teacher, a Peace Corps Volunteer, and a writer. His recent work as a humanitarian journalism trainer for the people of South Sudan made him instrumental in setting up South Sudan's first community radio station.
