NEW THIS YEAR!

South Sudan Lutheran Ministry Gifts

South Sudan Mission Project

On July 9, 2011 South Sudan became an independent nation in Africa.  This is an area that has suffered from civil war and drought, leaving people lacking food and medical care.

 

In 2016, the ELCA Global Mission began construction on Reconciliation Church Community Center and Clinic in Juba, South Sudan. This was to be a place for worship, classes, and clinic for people of the area.    It soon became apparent that there was a great need for women’s health care.  A maternity ward was needed and also a fistula program developed to provide surgery, healing, and wholeness to women suffering from vaginal fistulas.

 

Our gifts to South Sudan have been requested for two projects — an ambulance to transport emergency cases to specialized care, and medical care and support for the fistula patients.

 

This truly is a gift of new life to women living in a new country.
