Forced to leave their homes, internally displaced people represent a major segment of the population we serve.
Beginning with the struggle for independence and subsequent civil unrest, the conflicts in South Sudan have created an estimated 1,690,000 internally displaced persons – i.e, people who are essentially refugees inside their own country. The John Dau Foundation works with those who have been displaced by war by providing them with medical and nutritional services. Our site in Poktap has become a central point for people to travel to, and internally displaced persons can rely on the John Dau Foundation to serve them – regardless of tribe or ethnic group.
Your support for the John Dau Foundation helps us provide therapeutic feeding to malnourished children, pre-natal and maternity care to pregnant women and young mothers, as well as basic medical care for all who seek our help.
