John Dau Foundation and Its South Sudan Clinic Continue Efforts in Face of Deteriorating Humanitarian Situation
Date:1/10/2014

Skaneateles, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

While continued violence and a deteriorating humanitarian situation in South Sudan prove extremely challenging for aid organizations, the John Dau Foundation’s Duk Lost Boys Clinic continues its mission of providing healthcare and nutrition. The clinic is just north of highly contested Bor, the capital of Jonglei State.

Displaced people fleeing the conflict have placed additional stress on resources and supplies that are difficult to acquire even under routine circumstances there. Additionally, the conflict in Bor has cut off the clinic’s typical supply chain so that it cannot get supplies easily. The clinic is especially in need of additional funding so that it can afford to fly supplies from Juba. (Those wishing to donate may visit http://www.JohnDauFoundation.org.)

“The situation is dire,” said executive director Daniel Pisegna. “If the clinic cannot get supplies in the coming weeks, our critically important operations will be highly compromised.”

Before the current crisis, the clinic was providing healthcare and nutrition services to about 1,500 patients per month including vaccinations, prenatal visits, and treatment for various health issues such as malaria, gastroenteritis, pneumonia, UTIs, typhoid, and malnutrition. Under routine circumstances, less than half the population of South Sudan has access to health care services.

The John Dau Foundation founder John Bul Dau, who along with tens of thousands of children was forced to flee his village in South Sudan when he was just 12 years old, recently discussed the country’s escalating humanitarian crisis with National Geographic. Read his interview
