A Message of Gratitude and Hope as We Embark on Our Annual Mission to South Sudan
As I write to you today, it’s with a heart full of gratitude and hope. This year marks a significant milestone for the Healing Kadi Foundation as we embark on our 17th annual mission trip to South Sudan. Our unwavering commitment to reaching those in the most unreachable places with essential medical care has been a journey of compassion, resilience, and shared humanity. This would not have been possible without your steadfast support and generous donations.
Our journey over the years has been about providing medical care and nurturing a bond of trust and hope with the communities we serve. As we prepare to set out on this year’s mission, I ask for your prayers and thoughts for the safety and success of our team. Your spiritual support is the backbone of our courage and determination.
This mission also allows us to reflect on the incredible work at the Marilyn Miller Memorial Clinic in South Sudan. Our dedicated staff at the clinic tirelessly provides year-round care for various ailments, offering a beacon of hope in a region where medical assistance is scarce. Please keep them in your prayers as they continue to serve with unparalleled commitment and love.
As we look forward, I am also thrilled to invite you to a momentous occasion in the life of our foundation. On April 13, 2024, we will be hosting our First Annual Gala in Omaha, Nebraska. This gala will celebrate the impact of our collective efforts and lay the groundwork for future missions. It promises an evening of inspiration, community, and shared dreams for a healthier world.
Your support has been the cornerstone of our ability to make a difference. As we continue our mission in South Sudan and beyond, we are reminded of the power of collective action and the difference it can make in the lives of those in need. Let us move forward with hope, prayer, and the shared goal of healing and helping as many lives as possible.
Thank you for standing with us. Your generosity, prayers, and support illuminate our path and strengthen our resolve. Together, we are making the world a better place, one mission at a time.
With deepest gratitude and respect,
Joseph Dumba, M.D.

Healing Body, Mind and Soul
The Healing Kadi Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of the people of South Sudan through a holistic approach to healing. We believe that true healing encompasses physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and we aim to address all three aspects of a person’s being in our efforts.
To improve the physical health of individuals and communities, we provide access to medical care, nutrition, and clean water to combat the high rates of disease and malnutrition in South Sudan. Our goal is to reduce the burden of illness and enable people to thrive.
In addition to physical health, we recognize the significant psychological trauma experienced by many South Sudanese due to conflict, displacement, and loss. Our focus is on providing quality mental health care to all individuals, reducing the stigma associated with mental health in South Sudan, and prioritizing mental health services to address the urgent needs of the population.
Lastly, we understand the significance of addressing the spiritual needs of individuals and communities in the healing process. We aim to promote spiritual development, provide opportunities for people to connect with their faith and find meaning in their lives. Through this spiritual dimension of healing, we aim to foster hope, resilience, and a sense of purpose in the people of South Sudan.
Our comprehensive approach to healing reflects our commitment to promoting holistic healing and empowering the people of South Sudan to live healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives. Through our campaigns, we provide sustainable high-quality healthcare, education for local healthcare providers, and psychological and spiritual counseling. We are proud to make a difference in the lives of the South Sudanese community through our various initiatives.
Building a Healthier Society: The Healing Kadi Foundation’s Emphasis on Community Engagement and Collaboration
Improving health is not just the responsibility of healthcare professionals or governments but a collective effort involving every person and institution. The Healing Kadi Foundation (HKF) recognizes this and underscores the importance of community engagement and collaboration in promoting health and wellness. Through fostering partnerships with individuals, businesses, and government entities, HKF can encourage active involvement in creating a more comprehensive, collaborative approach to improving health that encompasses physical, mental, and social well-being.
To achieve a lifetime of great health, it is essential to challenge the current beliefs and practices that guide individuals and institutions. HKF acknowledges that our current ways of thinking and doing things may not be the most effective, and it is crucial to question the orthodoxies and status quo to discover new solutions and ways of thinking. HKF firmly believes that there is a clear path to achieving a lifetime of great health and that this plan is becoming increasingly understood and within our control. However, the blueprint to achieve this is not yet fully discovered, and there is still much to learn. By remaining open to new ideas and approaches, we can continue to refine our understanding of what it takes to achieve great health.
Through a collaborative effort, HKF and its partners can advocate for policies that support healthy environments and access to healthcare, promote healthy lifestyles, and create wellness programs in the workplace. These initiatives are critical components of a more comprehensive approach to improving health that goes beyond medical care to encompass mental and social well-being.
In conclusion, The Healing Kadi Foundation recognizes that creating a healthier society requires a collective effort that involves individuals, organizations, and governments. By emphasizing the importance of community engagement and collaboration, we can work together to promote health and wellness through a comprehensive approach that encompasses physical, mental, and social well-being. We believe that challenging current beliefs and practices, remaining open to new ideas, and advocating for policies supporting healthy environments and healthcare access are essential components of achieving great health.
Marilyn Miller Memorial Clinic
A fully functioning modern medical facility equipped with exam rooms, X-ray, surgical suite, pharmacy, and laboratory.
Marilyn Miller’s story weaves a profound thread of love and hope in the tender tapestry of compassion. A devoted member of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Omaha, she had a calling to serve those in distant lands. As a retired nurse, she carried an unwavering passion for missions, and when she learned of the plight of the people of South Sudan, her heart stirred with empathy.
In a heartfelt gesture transcending time, Marilyn bequeathed $100,000 in her will, a beacon of light earmarked for missions in South Sudan. Little did she know that her act of kindness would forever change the lives of countless souls, sparking a ripple of transformation across distant shores.
With gratitude and awe, we share that Marilyn’s selfless gift birthed the Clinic in Can, a sanctuary of healing and solace on our compound in Kajo Keji, South Sudan. Since its inception in 2013, this sacred haven has embraced over 450,000 patients with open arms, offering them vital medical care and tender relief from their suffering.
The Healing Kadi Foundation stands humbled and deeply grateful, for it is through the kindness of people like Marilyn that our mission endures. In her honor, we have named the clinic after her, a poignant reminder of her boundless compassion and care for those in need.
With each passing day, the legacy of Marilyn Miller continues to bloom, and her memory echoes through the walls of the Clinic in Can. Her love, imprinted on every life touched by her gift, inspires us to carry on her mission – to be beacons of hope, spreading compassion and healing wherever it is needed most.
Together, we embrace the legacy of love, nurturing a world where caring hearts unite and the warmth of humanity reigns supreme. In this collective journey of compassion, every donation becomes a vessel of transformation, turning pain into comfort, sorrow into joy, and despair into hope.
Let us, hand in hand, continue to sow the seeds of love and healing, honoring the spirit of Marilyn Miller and all those whose generosity breathes life into dreams. Through your kindness, our shared mission thrives, carrying forth a legacy of love that transcends borders and fills the world with hope.
