Akol came into the care of EGCH in October 2016. He is originally from the South Omo region (over 500 kilometers from Hawassa).

At approximately seven years old, Akol’s family requested that one of the doctors serving in the area take him in so he can receive a better education. Since moving to Hawassa, his father passed away, leaving only his mother and siblings. After only a short time with family, he lived in another orphanage until he eventually came into the Ebenezer family.
