Dr Justin Tongun, Consultant Paediatrician and Senior Lecturer in Paediatrics at the University of Juba Medical School would like to make  an appeal for assistance, preferably in kind, to furnish the Al Sabah Resource Centre. It needs desktop computers, wide screens to beam lectures from abroad and paediatric reference books.

Al Sabah Children’s Hospital is the only tertiary referral children’s hospital in South Sudan and serves a population of ten million. It is under-resourced but run by five dedicated South Sudanese paediatricians who not only treat ill children but teach newly qualified doctors, nurses and technicians.

The Resource Centre will house a library, a lecture theatre, tutorial rooms and a computer room to which lectures may be beamed from overseas centres of excellence. The Centre is scheduled to open in March 2022.

For further details please contact Dr Justin Tongun at [email protected]

We are grateful for your support for this new Resource Centre
