The Story

In December I'll be traveling to South Sudan to teach teachers how to provide basic medical care to the students they teach.  

Because South Sudan is impoverished, and because in the rainy season the roads are impassable, it's very difficult to get a sick or injured child to a medical facility.  With the appropriate supplies and training, teachers will be equipped to provide care for pediatric illness and injuries.  

I'll be training 100 teachers, which will impact 30,000 children!  

Your donation will help cover travel expenses for me -- and the teachers traveling to the training -- as well as training manuals and medical supplies. 

Whether you can give $5 or $500, your contribution will make a huge difference in the lives of these little ones.

Like a bridal or baby shower registry, I've created a South Sudan Registry.  Here's the breakdown of travel expenses and clinic supplies, and how much each item costs.
