Moses Chuel Bal , 52 , is a teacher at one of the schools built by Save the Children, with the support from the European Commission Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) and Comic Relief , at Jewi Refugee Camp, Gambella, Ethiopia. He is from South Sudan and a refugee himself who worked as a teacher for 29 years. That was before the war broke out and changed everything for him and his family. They had no choice but flee to Ethiopia. He first came to a school ran by Save the Children to register his kids, he then informed the staff that he was a teacher.
