PROJECT TITLE: Ajok Hospital
PROJECT LOCATION: Jak Payam at Tonj South County, Warrap State, Southern Sudan
PROJECT DURATION: April 2010 to December 2016
The Comprehensive Peace Agreement was signed in 2005 between the North and the South Sudan. Afterward, tens of thousands of peoples are returning to South Sudan particularly in Jak area in Warrap State. Currently, there is no accessible Health Centre for the entire population of Jak Payam in Tonj South County. Due to these challenges, the Padang Relief Society is committed to assisting the returning population by meeting their spiritual and physical needs through the comprehensive health care project.
The Ajok Hospital provides community health care services to the people of Jak Payam for the purpose of strengthening the Community who have endured extreme suffering through decades of civil war. As funds become available, the Hospital construction project will begin immediately. The original phase of this hospital construction will include the clinic with thirty inpatient beds along with laboratory and pharmacy. The new hospital will provide the medical services to the entire population of Jak Payam and surrounding areas in Tonj South County. After the construction, the hospital will be equipped with medical materials and qualified staff.
In 2009, Padang Relief Society has signed the MOU with the Sudan Education & development Association based in Warrap State in Southern Sudan.
Padang Relief Society will manage this hospital project until May, 2017. Afterwards, the hospital will be handed over to the Sudan Education and Development Association in Warrap State.
