50,000 refugees are now in Old Fangak
As a safe haven during the recent civil war Old Fangak became home for 50,000 refugees—or more. Although South Sudan is now at peace, many of those refugees decided to make Old Fangak their home. Here they find medical care, clean water and food. The Alaska Sudan Medical Project's mission, to provide hope and health, is working to save lives. But we need to do more. The need grows every day. New water wells are needed. Our agriculture program can be introduced to a new population. A long planned tuberculosis clinic is needed now more than ever.
Ensure our work is sustainable.

In Old Fangak, South Sudan it is because people like you cared enough to give.
