Ray Storms Opens Heart and Home to Sudanese Refugees

Ray Storms is providing a brighter future for the Lost Boys of Sudan. For more than six years he has been volunteering with the Alliance of the Lost Boys, helping them assimilate into and become responsible stewards of the Jacksonville community.

Better known to these young men as “Papa Ray,” this retired teacher and author has dedicated his life and golden years to helping them realize dreams and achieve success.
These young refugees were torn from their families due to the Sudanese Civil War and would have truly been lost, were it not for volunteers such as Ray. He is a mentor and teacher, providing lessons to these young men that range from eating with silverware, learning to drive, to helping them fulfill educational goals. Because of his selfless acts of giving, these young men have a chance to experience freedom.

Ray has dedicated his time, finances and home to the Lost Boys of Sudan. He has come to the aide of many of these young men, giving them a way out of hopeless situations. He has broken through many international barriers by staying positive, providing lots of laughter, and exuding a fatherly love that has helped fill a void in many of these young men’s lives.

Ray Storm’s efforts have enriched our community’s environment by reaching across international lines and seeing into the hearts of the Lost Boys of Sudan.

Come out and meet Ray and some of his “boys” this Thursday night at Celebrate!GOOD.
