The Healing Kadi Foundation (HKF) has achieved remarkable milestones, showcasing its dedication to addressing healthcare needs and fostering positive change in the communities it serves. Some of our most important accomplishments include:
Establishment of Healthcare Facilities: HKF successfully established outpatient clinics in South Sudan, providing comprehensive medical services to over 350,000 individuals since 2013. These clinics serve as vital resources, delivering essential medical consultations, treatments, and preventive care to underserved populations.
Clean Water Provision: Recognizing the importance of clean water for overall health, HKF has implemented initiatives to provide clean water to the clinic and the surrounding villages. This critical intervention ensures that communities have access to safe drinking water, reducing the risk of waterborne diseases and promoting better health outcomes.
24/7 Availability of Power: To enhance emergency services and medical care, HKF has ensured the availability of continuous power supply to the clinic. This vital provision enables the clinic to operate effectively day and night, offering timely and lifesaving emergency services to those in need.
Training Healthcare Professionals: HKF is committed to building local healthcare capacity. To achieve this, the foundation has provided training opportunities for medical professionals. Specifically, HKF has trained three doctors, four nurses, two laboratory technicians, and continues to support the education of several more individuals currently enrolled in medical school. This investment in training helps to address the shortage of qualified healthcare personnel in the region.
Emergency Medical Transport Vehicle: Recognizing the importance of swift medical intervention, HKF has acquired an emergency medical transport vehicle. This dedicated vehicle allows for the efficient and timely transportation of patients requiring urgent medical attention, ensuring they receive the necessary care in a timely manner.
These achievements exemplify the Healing Kadi Foundation’s profound commitment to improving healthcare access and services. By establishing a comprehensive outpatient clinic, providing clean water, ensuring continuous power supply, training healthcare professionals, and acquiring emergency medical transport, HKF has made tangible and lasting contributions to the well-being of the communities it serves.
