Training local South Sudanese to care for their own community

Main image

We (Isaac + Rebekah) are both New Zealand registered nurses and in 2020 we are planning to return to Tonj, South Sudan, where we will work with In Deed and Truth Ministries (IDAT - a christian faith based organisation) in their paediatric and maternal healthcare clinic.

After spending five months in 2018 with IDAT we were so impressed with the work going on in this town. Providing healthcare is an essential aspect of reducing poverty, however IDAT and their kiwi medical directors recognise that services need to be sustainable, long-lasting, and ultimately driven by local staff. This means educating, employing, and empowering South Sudanese to care for their own people.

We want to support IDAT's work by providing simple but high quality training to local health staff employed in the clinic and beyond, with the goal of improving the overall quality of care in the clinic and ward.

This page has been set up as a way to raise funds for a training programme, as well as to assist with purchasing equipment for the clinic and ward that are difficult to source in the region.

Needs include:

- education resources such as basic tablets loaded with etextbooks and health materials

- providing a salary to employ a local staff member to work with the education team

- neonatal equipment for the ward such as oxygen delivery devices (nasal prongs, CPAP machine)

- monitoring equipment for children/babies/mothers

- certain wound care dressings (that aren't available in South Sudan!)

Use of funds

100% of all donations will go directly to purchasing medical equipment and education materials, and providing a salary to a local staff member. Funds will not be spent on travel, administration, or other expenses.
