Coronavirus Update. Help us prepare.
Our team reports that as of April 3rd 2020 the coronavirus has not yet been detected in Old Fangak. The country of South Sudan has closed international borders and international travel. Schools and businesses are closed countrywide. We will be working with other NGO's in Old Fangak to help prepare the community by providing COVID - 19 hygiene education and other outreach as requested and as we are able. The new motto among our Alaska Team is "wash your hands." Please consider a donation today to help us with fuel for our boat and to continue our staffing during this difficult time period. Our program will continue in Old Fangak until such time that social distancing and best health practices dictate that we stop our work. For now, the community continues to benefit from the work underway including the new tuberculosis clinic. Photos of work in progress here.
Ensure our work is sustainable.

Life saving medical care delivered at the clinic built by the Alaska Sudan Medical Project
This clinic is now serves the entire region. It is the only place where people can get treatment for serious medical conditions. Some patients walk for days, in all seasons, to come to Old Fangak and be treated. In many cases it's the only hope they have. That is why we built it. Hope and health for life. In Old Fangak, South Sudan it is because people like you cared enough to give.
