Providing healthcare services in Mongalla camp for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in Central Equatoria State of South Sudan
Annual Goal: $15,000.00
After flooding, most of the population of Piol, the original location of the Buckeye Clinic in South Sudan, moved to a camp for IDPs in Mongalla. Within the camp, there is a profound need for medical assistance to prevent childhood diseases, to provide professional care for mothers and newborns, and to diagnose and treat the illnesses of people in the area such as malaria, respiratory and diarrheal diseases.
In early 2021, the Buckeye Clinic Board in Columbus, Ohio, made a commitment to respond to the health crisis in the Mongalla IDP camp.
