Miracle of Birth

Description

Aluet Chok, sits with her newborn twins at Warrap State Hospital in South Sudan.

The first of the twins, a boy, was born at home. But then there were complications. Aluet had to travel three hours to get to the hospital, where she delivered the second baby, a healthy girl.

The care she received a the hospital saved her life and her second twin. Many women in South Sudan will not receive that level of care.

There are six doctors connected to the hospital—and only 12 for the entire state of Warrap—one doctor for every 116,000 people.

The hospital serves a population of more than 1.3 million people with an outpatient department, a general ward, a maternity ward, an operating theater, and a surgical ward that is not functioning—there is no water and no electricity.
