South Sudan Health Clinic - www.sudanclinic.org
As six year old boys, Jok Dau and Bol Aweng, two Lost Boys of Sudan, fled their village in 1987 when it was attacked, bombed and burned by government troops. While walking 1,500 miles to Ethiopia and then to Kenya, they survived attacks by government troops, starvation, illness and attacks by wild animals. Of the 35,000 Lost Boys that fled Southern Sudan, they were among the 16,000 who safely arrived in Kenya. They spent fourteen years in refugee camps until they were approved for resettlement in the United States by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. They arrived in Nashville, Tennessee in 2001, worked at low wage jobs while earning Associate Degrees in Computer technology. They moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend The Ohio State University. They became US citizens in 2007 and graduated from OSU with degrees in Political Science and Fine Arts.
Our Mission is to provide additional health education and promotion and medical services to the people of Piol village in South Sudan with a focus on maternal and child health. Please visit our web site to learn more.
