(Above) Mary Adut acts as the good-natured patient for four fellow nursing students: Victoria Akon, Elizabeth Ayen, Victoria Piath and Victoria Nyibol. All five are on MBB scholarships. They will make the difficult journey from Rumbek to Wau each year, braving armed bandits, flash floods, and bone-jarring roads to return to the country’s premier health training college, the Catholic Health Training Institute.
Healing Hands for South Sudan
South Sudan has only 248 trained nurses for its 12 million people. The vast majority of them are male. Your goodness is improving that bleak statistic. You’ve already helped 14 female Scholars to graduate as midwives, nurses, or auxiliary nurses. Your “healing generosity” currently funds the studies of 13 more.
Just imagine how many lives these Scholars will save over the course of their healthcare careers!
