 DONATE NOW!

 

In 2004, we partnered with the American organization that started a hospital in Werkok South Sudan by paying the short – term salaries of four Sudanese health care workers in Werkok, Southern Sudan. In the initial stages of the hospital, doctors worked from the confines of a straw hut.Today, doctors work in a new modern  facilities.

Throughout the years, we have continued our support for this hospital and in 2009, through the generosity of our supporters, we were able to pay for the construction of a modern X-Ray/communication facility at the hospital. Now completed, the X-ray/communication facility has vinyl, lead lined walls and air conditioning.

In 2017, through the gracious $30,000 donation from The Community Foundation and Delores Barr Weaver, we were able to fund the construction for a three room house for the onsite doctor at this hospital and his family. This house was named “Andrew’s House, in memory of one of our local Lost Boys, Andrew Abui, who was visiting South Sudan and was killed in an unexpected conflict. We are still waiting for final photos of Andrews House.
