 South Sudan Christmas Appeal 2017

This Christmas HealthServe is embarking on an ambitious and exciting Building Partnership with The Reverend Santino Yuot and his community at Wedweil, South Sudan. This project aims to build a Healthcare Clinic in the North West Corner of South Sudan, in the Aweil District.


While the building is a 2018 program, we are aiming to kickstart the project funding by raising $30,000 to offer a true gift to our neediest South Sudanese sisters and brothers. 


The vision is to create a Healthcare Facility that we might show compassion and deliver high quality services South Sudanese people who live with disease, sickness and child and maternal mortality which is preventable and treatable.

An Evening with Rev Santino - May 2017

Saturday Evening 13th May Healthserve hosted an evening with Rev Santino Rang Yuot,

who has spent the last five months back  in his home region in South Sudan exploring the critical healthcare needs in their area.

He met both with the community members and leaders and discussed the initiative of building a Healthcare Clinic in Wedweil, as a regional healthcare clinic in this northern area of South Sudan.

There are many challenges in working in South Sudan but the communities there are in desperate need.

Our work with Santino on this project is ongoing and we hope it will bear fruit in the months to come. Please continue to support Healthserve’s partnerships in Africa; in South Sudan and Uganda.
