About the John Dau Foundation and Duk Lost Boys Clinic

The mission of the John Dau Foundation is to build and sustain medical clinics and train community health workers in South Sudan. Its first clinic, the Duk Lost Boys Clinic, was established in May of 2007. The clinic is located in Duk Payuel, a village in Duk County, Jonglei State, South Sudan. Tens of thousands of people in the region have been disrupted and displaced by conflict and face hunger, malnutrition, and a scarcity of health care.

Since opening, the Duk Lost Boys Clinic has come to lead the coordination of medical services within Duk County and serves as a model for success for the entire region. More than 110,000 patients have received life-saving nutrition and medical care at the clinic, whose staff sees typically between 75-150 patients per day. Some walk more than 30 miles in order to receive health services. More than 2,000 expectant mothers have received pre-natal care at the clinic, in a country where maternal and child mortality rates are among the highest in the world.

Key humanitarian partners of the clinic also involved in addressing the overall humanitarian emergency in the region include IMA World Health, the World Food Program, and UNICEF. For more information about the foundation and clinic, and to learn how to help, visit http://www.JohnDauFoundation.org.
