South Sudan: On the Frontline of Health Care for the Poor

This excellent BBC photo-essay on a nurse’s life in South Sudan reminds us why we love to help health workers in this fledgling nation. South Sudan is the youngest country in the world, unbelievably beset with challenges, ranging from extreme poverty to post-war recovery.

There are far too few health workers in South Sudan and those who faithfully serve their people are plagued with a lack of infrastructure, of medicines, and of equipment.

We’re proud to send medicines and medical supplies to South Sudanese clinics that serve the very poor.

Check out the BBC photo-essay here and you can see the conditions that people like Nurse James are working in, attempting to serve people who are ‘starting from zero’
