The Liwolo Clinic opened in September 2015 and has become a lifeline, not just for the people of Kajo Keji but for those from many miles around. Since fighting has escalated over the last couple of months, the clinic staff (including a fully trained nurse and midwife) have taken the difficult decision to close the clinic, remove all equipment and relocate to Arua, which is a town in the north west of Uganda on the border with the Congo.
The clinic is staffed solely by South Sudanese who have risked their own lives to save the equipment and ensure it got across the border safely. The team’s aim is to re-open the clinic in Arua, and are doing all they can to find a temporary location.
Long time supporter of CRESS Sarah Sedgewick has kindly set up a Crowdfunder page to help raise funds. Money needed to help pay rent for the clinic when reopened, fund much needed equipment and medicines and employ additional staff to cope with the huge numbers of refugees who will require medical attention.
This project is using Flexible funding and will receive all pledges made by 7:01am 22nd March 2017. Please give if you can, even the smallest donation can help!
