Our surgical project in Nasir not only serves the population in the county but also nearby counties and even another project on the other side of Ethiopia which is only 10-15Km away.

Because of the hot weather and unpredictable rain, agriculture is not that reliable in South Sudan. Just like last year when the rain decrease, there was failure of crops which lead to shortage of food this year.

The raining season finally started in Nasir. Normally it's from May to September each year. But here when it rains, it rains really hard and usually comes with very strong wind to a degree like typhoon no. 8 or above in Hong Kong.

Our project is the only project with surgical facility in the east part of South Sudan, so nearby project will send patients to us that require surgical treatment. They may arrive in planes or on boats as we are right next to the river.

In less than three weeks here, I treated 3 babies surgically, not counting those I delivered through Caesarian section on their mothers. All of them less than a month old.

Life is hard in South Sudan. Hot climate, no rain for a large part of the year makes agriculture difficult. Lack of clean water and proper sanitation makes poor health condition. Lack of education makes slow progress in the community.

Since 2008, it's the third time I'm on the continent of Africa. Starting from Monrovia of Liberia, then Aweil in South Sudan, and now Nasir of South Sudan.

It’s my last week in Teme Hospital, still full of surprise and excitement.

It was an exciting Monday morning. Unfortunately, the final outcome was very disappointed.
