Health equals wealth. It's a simple equation that a lot of us take for granted. We live in a privileged society where health care and other aid services are available. In Canada, the hospital to population ratio is 1 to 24,404 while in Southern Sudan that ratio is 1 to 430,195. That equates to roughly one visit per lifetime. At present, it is estimated that up to 75 percent of the population have no access to even the most basic healthcare. Another serious barrier to survival is the near-total lack of secondary and tertiary level of medical provision, even in many of Southern Sudan’s major cities.

Southern Sudan has the highest number of pregnancy-related deaths in the world – 1 in every 50 pregnancies. This is hardly surprising given that after two decades of civil war 20 midwives were left to serve a population of around 10 million people. Women die needlessly from conditions that are easily treatable if trained staff were available. Women often travel for miles to reach a trained midwife, by foot or on the back of a bicycle, only to die or miscarry on the way. Kush will work with marginalized groups, especially women and children to build primary health units that will localize communities. By identifying the most pressing health needs; Kush can provide assistance on the management of health interventions, such as immunization, malaria control and nutrition. We will provide basic medical equipment and health training to mothers and community members.

The setup of Medical Clinics will focus on three areas: Children, Women health and Health Education.

Children Health

Children represent the future and ensuring their healthy growth and development ought to be a prime concern of all societies. Children and newborns in particular are vulnerable to malnutrition and infectious diseases, many of which can be effectively prevented or treated.

Women Health

Women's health refers to health issues specific to human female anatomy. Women's health issues include menstruation, contraception, maternal health, child birth, menopause and breast cancer. They can also include medical situations in which women face problems not directly related to their biology, for example gender-differentiated access to medical treatment.


1. Build basic neonatal health unit targeting women at child bearing age.
2. Collaborate with local doctors, medical assistants, midwives and nurses to provide health care.
3. Collaborate with other Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) serving the areas for recruitment and training of medical staff.
4. Fund initial set-up of a unit for examination and diagnostic equipment.
5. Source medication ~ with an established medical supply chain (Kenya or Uganda) and established or new entrant NGOs.

Health Education & Promotion

From HIV awareness days to malaria action week, we can promote behavioral change through health-focused social events.

Imagine for a moment that your loved one was sick. Would you have access to medication and or a doctor? Would you have someone to take care of your loved one?

According to WHO - All of the health facilities assessed in South Sudan are in a deplorable state. The buildings and other structures are in dire need of rehabilitations.

KUSH strives to help the people of Southern Sudan by building healthy communities that are self-sufficient in three areas:

1. Improved education

2. Accessible Health Care

3. Clean Drinking Water
