South Sudan Villages Clinic
Clinic Opened: April 2019
Fidele Dhan, Founder -
a 501(c)3 Organization
Fidele Dhan’s motivation to open a clinic came during his 2006 journey back to the land of his birth: “People kept coming to me all hours of the day and night; bringing their sick children to me, thinking that I graduated in medicine and that I could help them. I knew then that I cannot just wait until that day may occur. I need to do something now.”
Today Fidele's mission reached a milestone with the opening of the Clinic. Now we need YOUR help to fund basic medical supplies, equipment and staff. #give #love
Celebrating the opening of South Sudan Villages Clinic - Koiyom Clinic in April 2019. Medicines have arrived and medical staff are busy. We have 2 Physician Assistants and 2 Nurses and have been flooded with over 50 patients per day. If this trend continues we will be the busiest medical clinic in the region.
All 7 beds in the clinic are filled with patients suffering from Malaria or waterborne illnesses who are unable to return home. We need additional medical supplies and simple hospital beds to provide basic life-saving care now. These villagers have no other medical care or access.
