A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park
This book tells two stories. One about a boy named Salva, the other about a girl named Nya. Salva was one of the lost boys, who was separated from his family and had to learn how to survive as a young boy in a country torn by war. Nya walks miles every day just to provide her family with water so they might survive one more day. Nya's and Salva's stories are separated by time, but intertwined by location and reinforces how the work of one individual can make such a profound difference in the lives of many.
