Malaria and Paediatrics care in Aweil

South Sudan

Years of conflict have forced millions of people from their homes.

Exposed to extreme violence and living in fear for their lives, hundreds of thousands of people in South Sudan are unable to access basic necessities such as food, water and healthcare.

We work in hospitals and clinics throughout the country, where we are running some of our biggest programmes worldwide.

Our teams provide basic and specialised healthcare and respond to emergencies and outbreaks affecting isolated communities, internally displaced people and refugees from Sudan.
