In the wake of South Sudan’s ongoing years-long civil war—creating one of the world’s largest refugee crises—tens of thousands of displaced individuals still live in makeshift camps without access to essential lifesaving care. Currently, two camps located in Juba are experiencing overwhelming supply shortages and related challenges. For this year's Miles for Mothers, Jhpiego is raising funds to save lives in this war-ravaged nation. Our goal is $31,000 to purchase diagnostic medical supplies and clinical equipment, supplies for community health workers, and clinic space improvements. Join us by walking, running, donating or sponsoring a participant to keep moms and babies healthy!
Ethan and I will be running in the Baltimore Running Festival this October to support Jhpiego's Miles For Mothers campaign.
This year, we are raising resources for families and children in South Sudan who have been displaced by years of ongoing conflict, who could really use our support. Tens of thousands of displaced individuals still live in makeshift camps without access to essential lifesaving care. The devastating aftermath of this humanitarian crisis has resulted in South Sudan having the fifth highest maternal mortality rate in the world and an ongoing HIV epidemic.
If you're able to give $25 or even $75 to the cause, it 100% goes to help purchase medical equipment and supplies in South Sudan, which are severely needed. I know we’re thousands of miles away—but this is a small thing I can do to help in a BIG way! Please click the "Donate Now" button to make a contribution!
Help equip health facilities for displaced women and children in South Sudan.
