Thank You for Your Continued Support!

tasteOfAfrica Thank you too all of our supporters who came out to City Grill on September 26 to enjoy the tastes and sounds of Africa! It was an eventful evening with delicious food and an energetic performance by Mounafanyi Percussion and Dance Ensemble. Thank you also to our emcee, Andrea Holland, for taking part in our event. Because of you we were able to raise the $5,000 necessary to establish a contract with United Nations Humanitarian Air Services (UNHAS) to provide transportation of our medicines and supplies to the clinic. As we continue our work to provide medical support the people of South Sudan, learn more about how you can help!

We’re Operational Again!

The clinic is open and serving patients after a fresh shipment of medicines and supplies. We thank Samaritan’s Purse for helping us transport this shipment from Juba this past month. Please consider a donation so that operations can continue. It is the rainy season in South Sudan, and transportation costs are higher. Birthing supplies and medicines to treat dehydration, malnutrition, and infections are greatly needed and much appreciated.

Cause to Celebrate!

Our Clinic

This August we’ll be celebrating the clinic’s one-year anniversary! Six months ago, volunteers and local villagers completed building the clinic and we began operations. In just the first eight weeks of operations our medical attendant Emmanuel Jau treated more than 1,200 men, women, and children. Since then, the clinic staff has seen nearly 3,000 patients and recently hired a third staff member, John Chol, to help with the growing demand.

Stay tuned for the “save the date” announcement of our anniversary celebration/fall fundraiser!

Clinic Update – May 12, 2014

As you may well know, conflict between governing factions in South Sudan broke out last December which forced us to close the clinic in order to ensure the safety of patients and staff members. We were able to re-open after two weeks, but soon ran out of medicine and the continued unsettledness prevented the staff from traveling to Juba (the South Sudan Capital) for supplies.

Palath’s Journey Home – 2012

Journey Home

Palath had the chance to return home to South Sudan to visit family and friends, and to plan the location for the Clinic in December, 2011. Since this visit, Palath has hired an on-site Manager to carry on the day-to-day activities. The structure is being put up “as we speak.” The Clinic is underway and is located in Panthur, South Sudan. The structure is getting finishing touches from the community, an additional hut area is being built, Philip (our On-site Manager) is planning to hire a nurse, and medical supplies will be brought in. Palath has made it happen! We are on the way… Continue reading
