Call the Midwife

Description

World Vision staff member Evalyn Wakhanu, 46, is the senior midwifery officer at a hospital in South Sudan.

World Vision staffs four positions at this hospital—the hospital coordinator, senior medical officer, senior nursing officer, and senior midwife.

South Sudan is in conflict and its health system is broken. The hospital particularly needs anti-malarials, Evalyn says.

“When the rain starts, we will have a lot of malaria,” she says. “We need the lifesavers—antibioti­cs and anti malarials. We also need drugs to give to women to prevent bleeding after delivery.”

The needs go beyond pharmaceuticals. “We don’t just need drugs, but supplies. Even delivery beds.”

“We receive a lot of things [from World Vision]. We are grateful that World Vision can work at the hospital level. Without World Vision, it’s just not enough,” she says.
