Miles for Mothers

South Sudan: A Nation of Hope

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!
