Friends In Solidarity

South Sudan

Friends in Solidarity is the US partner to Solidarity with South Sudan. Solidarity with South Sudan helps rebuilding the Church in the war-torn country of South Sudan (Africa) through capacity building initiatives that include the training of teachers, health care professionals and pastoral teams. One of the collaborative ministries of the Solidarity of South Sudan is the Catholic Health Training Institute (CHTI) in War, South Sudan. This Institute trains health care professionals, especially nurses and midwives, and provides them with full scholarships (including room and board). Since 2013, the CHTI has graduated 181 registered nurses and 87 midwives. Nearly 85% are employed in the health care sector in the South Sudan.

For it is in giving that we receive.

St. Francis of Assisi
