October 2015 - by Boniface Duku - I am a South Sudanese working for HealthNet in Wau County, Western Bahr El Ghazal State. We work to strengthen health systems in the country, community governance, empowering communities to take charge of their own lives and development needs using Resource Mapping and Mobilization approaches and community based mental health and psychosocial support interventions. In this regard mental health and psychosocial support is an integral part of HealthNet’s projects.
19 August 2015 – by Rudolf Nyiyuo - Bor South is one of the counties in Jonglei state which was most affected by the recent conflict in South Sudan. In 2013-2014, more than 100,000 people were displaced from Bor to internally displaced people and refugee camps in South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya. It is now that people are beginning to return to their homes in large numbers, to find them looted, burned and their lives as they knew them, destroyed.
