The Sudan Medical Link has recently received an anonymous gift of £10,000 and a bequest of £5,000 and want to say a huge Thank You to the givers.

Robin Sadler, Medical Advisor to the Link said:

"These gifts have transformed the finances and through the e-Bulletin the committee wish to express their sincere gratitude. This means we will be able to increase the number in training.

"The three year course fees for one student are just over £3,000 and we like to offer something for the living expenses as well. The committee of five are incredibly grateful for these donations and want to stress that no gift is too small."

The Salisbury Sudan Medical Link has been supporting health care in South Sudan for over 25 years.

Last year, visits were made to numerous nurse, midwife and laboratory technician training schools. We are currently training twelve students in these specialties.

Robin added:
"We want to say a big thank you to many people who have supported us over these years.

"These students have promised to work in their own diocese for a significant time after qualification."

As well as training, the Link supplies medicines to the Episcopal Church of South Sudan clinics. The medicines used to be imported from Uganda but as the security situation across the country improves, pharmacies are opening in Juba. For security reasons, the medicines still need to be delivered by air to guarantee safe arrival.
