Anand Naidoo sits in for Riz Khan this week.

On Tuesday, we delve into the world of the 'Lost Boys' of Sudan.

This is the name given to the thousands of southern Sudanese boys who were brought to the United States over the past few years.

They were orphaned or separated from their families during the Sudanese civil war - which raged on from 1984-2005 and killed 2 million people - and now are scattered throughout the United States.

We speak with Filmon Mebrahtu, who followed the lives of three 'Lost Boys' in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and produced the film, Dinka Diaries in 2005.
