Medicines shortages put young lives at risk in Omilling South Sudan!
Shelves in Loheru health post is empty, and sick patients are forced to travel long distances to receive medical treatment in Omilling, where basic medications can mean the difference between life and death.
Charles Loki (local chief) is already familiar with the gaps plaguing the healthcare system in his area of south Sudan. He, like many others, faces long walks to the nearest healthcare facility, only to wonder whether he’ll be turned away due to drug shortages.
When Loki gets sick, he must walk about 35 miles to Magwi County Healthcare facility. “I feel bad that I have to walk for miles to get treatment”, he says.
“And even when I get there, sometimes I am told there no drugs and therefore referred to Torit State hospital, which is even farther.”
With donations from GlobalGiving we buy medicines which we supply to the health post then distribute to sick patients. On July 8 we supplied the health post with medication to treat 50 people for skin infections.
We still need your help so we provide ongoing supplies of medicines to safe children, women, and men from dying in Omilling.
Thanks to our donors! Thanks to GlobalGiving for sharing our project with kind people! Without YOU - Hope Ofiriha will not be able to help women and children.
In the next 3 months new updates will be posted, and we will also report on how your contributions are impacting the lives of people in Omilling south Sudan.
