Dear Priscilla

Hope you are doing well !!!

Their are mainly two sports activity that are popular in South Sudan as per my knowledge , as i am staying in the capital i.e Juba . Football & Basketball is mainly popular game , you can find boys playing football at any time as they have a good football team that represent South Sudan internationally . I am so happy to see them playing freely even though the situation remain tense most of the time .

I pray to God to give strength to this country to face the bad time they are going through and hope peace will come soon with prosperity.
