In February 1992, during a humanitarian mission in Southern Sudan for the European Association for Studies on Nutrition and Child Development (ADE), the authors "discovered" thousands of young boys, abandoned in the Polataka camp. The course of their lives since birth dictated by the armed conflicts which had shaken the Southern Sudan, and decimated by hunger and disease, these young boys lived in conditions of absolute poverty. To alleviate the emergency, ADE was launching a medical action in Polataka, between 1992 and 1995, and then further south in Omere and Labone where the boys were displaced. Dr. Zygmunt L. Ostrowski also revealed young "artistes en herbe" with art therapy, leading to the creation by Zygmunt of the "School of Painting Polataka".
Dr. Zygmunt L. Ostrowski, pediatrician, graduate in Warsaw in African sciences, former advisor to the World Health Organization, is president of ADE, a humanitarian NGO based in Paris. Dr Marie-Christine Josse is nutritionist and scientific director of the ADE. While conducting scientific studies in Southern Sudan, they found themselves immersed in the heart of the Sudanese civil war. They had published several scientific and geopolitical books on Sudan. For one of these works they had shared the Henri Duveyrier Prize (1840-1892) of the French Geographical Society, in 2007.
