Rev. Santino has returned from Wedweil, South Sudan after three months in stifling heat to show Healthserve the fruit of our funds.

The Project has completed an 8m deep well in Wedweil that will serve the township and eventually the clinic.

The foundations of the clinic are being set and the first building constructed with the $9,000 AUD Healthserve Donors contributed to this project in 2017-2018.


Well done donors and we look forward to helping the next phases of the work in 2019.
