Click here to donate to our latest campaign: Hygiene is in your hands 

Health Care South Sudan’s Founder, Alison Pinkerton (widow of Salisbury consultant pathologist Robert Pinkerton) will celebrate her 90th birthday on Easter Monday! Known to the medical profession as Dr Alison Smithies, her intrepid work in South Sudan and her determination to improve healthcare for the people she worked amongst has been an inspiration.

Please celebrate Alison’s 90th with a gift to support her charity and our life-saving initiative to help deliver a participatory WASH project in Kupera Payam, Lainya County, South Sudan: Hygiene is in your hands. All money raised will support the project that is being delivered with our indigenous partner NGO, South Sudan Health Association (SSUHA). We’re aiming to raise money to match the funds of £9,000 that Health Care South Sudan has already pledged to support the project. You can read more about the project on our blog by clicking in the top menu.

More about Health Care South Sudan

Health Care South Sudan is a UK registered charity and run on an entirely voluntary basis by its founders and trustees, all experienced clinical and administrative professionals with a strong commitment to the projects it supports and the wherewithal to ensure that all funds received are delivered and used efficiently and effectively on the ground. You can read more about our policies including our privacy policy by clicking on the Privacy and Policies button in the top menu.

Any money that you donate will go directly towards a project to help save lives in South Sudan. Our charity is run by Trustees who are not paid, lowering overheads and meaning any financial support is spent on the projects themselves. You can give as much or as little as you would like. The examples below demonstrate how far your money could go to changing the lives of people in South Sudan:

  • £10 can pay for something as simple as soap. Cleaning hands helps to prevent the spread of disease and infection in villages, where something as common as sickness and diarrhoea can kill.
  • £40 can pay for jerry cans to help people in South Sudan carry water cleanly from the source to their home. This clean water is vital for drinking and washing, dramatically lowering the chances of dying from preventable diseases.
  • £100 can pay for people in South Sudan to train to become a supervisor, equipping them with skills for life and meaning that they can run the projects that we support aimed at saving lives in their community.
  • £1000 can help to train 100 people from multiple villages in hygiene, enabling them to support better hygiene in their communities.
