In 2004, we helped to set up a health clinic serving over 50,000 people in Tonj North, Warrap State. Three years later, 20,000 people were vaccinated against meningitis during an emergency response delivered by Islamic Relief.
With UNHCR support, we managed a camp for Ethiopian refugees seeking safety in Juba. Thousands of children in the area benefited as we completed the construction of four new schools in 2008, and in 2012 we delivered an emergency project to provide families returning to Juba with access to water.
Improved access to water
Over 150,000 poor people benefitted from our project in Terekeka, and Tonj North. The scheme, which completed in 2011, improved access to drinking water and also helped prevent the spread of disease by promoting good hygiene.
Current programmes include water and sanitation, emergency response and healthcare covering Central Equatoria, Kuda, Terekaka and Warrap. We are also supporting South Sudan’s most vulnerable people – particularly women and children – to achieve sustainable economic and social development.
