Our project is the only project with surgical facility in the east part of South Sudan, so nearby project will send patients to us that require surgical treatment. They may arrive in planes or on boats as we are right next to the river.
Life is hard in South Sudan. Hot climate, no rain for a large part of the year makes agriculture difficult. Lack of clean water and proper sanitation makes poor health condition. Lack of education makes slow progress in the community.
I have performed my seventh laparotomy case in Teme in this morning. It’s another case of gun shot wound at the back, on right side of spine. The bullet stayed at left side of abdominal wall, just beneath the skin.
