Residents of South Sudan suffer from widespread preventable disease, endemic famine, rampant malnourishment and civil war. Because of a shortage of nutrition and basic health services, 1 in 5 children die before they reach the age of five. Maternal mortality is particularly high as well.
Through our partnership with the John Dau Foundation we screen for malnutrition, administer nutrition programs, provide mothers with pre- and post-natal care, and deliver treatment and immunization for preventable diseases largely unknown in the West.
