Services at the Buckeye Clinic


With medicines funded by UNICEF and delivered by the government of South Sudan, the clinic staff treat patients for malaria, guiney worm, malnutrition, other ailments, and minor injuries.  The Emergency Medical Transport is used to transport women with problem pregnancies and children with malaria or needing nutritional care to the hospital.  Although the war continued since 2013, clinic staff continued to provide services in Piol and provided vaccinations and other services to internally displaced people in areas where they had fled.  Because people had not returned to the village in time to plant their crops, delivery of food became the priority.  Beginning in April 2014, food was distributed every other month from the Buckeye Clinic.  This enabled people to return to the village and re-inhabit their family compounds.  The commitment of food deliveries enabled people to stay in the village.
