2024 Highlights from New Hope Kajo-Keji

Since opening in September 2023, New Hope Kajo-Keji Health and Rehabilitation Centre has already become a vital part of the health infrastructure for those living in the Kajo-Keji region of South Sudan. Those displaced by the civil war are returning to their homes so the need for health and disability services is high and still growing. In fact, the clinic is seeing over 1000 patients a month (nearly 6000 since opening) which is over double what we initially expected - an amazing achievement for our team there!

Key Statistics (since opening in September 2023)

  • 5600 outpatients seen
  • 4000 laboratory tests
  • 6200 received health education
  • 84 pregnant women registered
  • 72 prosthetic & orthotic devices provided
  • 36 wheelchairs & trikes given
  • 230 physiotherapy sessions provided


Highlights from New Hope Kajo-Keji

  • Clean running water is now available in the clinic thanks to the addition of a pump, control unit, insulated water towers and sinks. This is a huge upgrade and will dramatically improve working conditions for our team and their patients.
  • Electricity is now available onsite thanks to installation of a generator, solar panels and battery storage.
  • Prosthetic limbs, and wheelchair distributions are taking place at the clinic thanks to outreach mobile clinics provided by our team from New Hope BidiBidi.  
  • First baby born at New Hope Kajo-Keji! - although deliveries are usually referred to the government hospital, one baby girl decided to make an appearance quicker than expected. Our amazing midwife stepped in and delivered a healthy baby girl.


Story for New Hope Kajo-Keji: Rose and Solomon

Rose lives in Kajo-Keji with her son Solomon, having returned from BidiBidi refugee settlement in Uganda. Although she has to walk three hours to reach the clinic, Rose has been making use of the services available since the clinic opened in September 2023, and has returned three times with Solomon when he has been suffering from a fever and diahorrea.

Rose and Solomon visited the clinic again in March, when Solomon was diagnosed with Malaria through a rapid test and was given medication to combat the disease. Malaria is the most common case the team seen at the clinic.

Rose commented that the team have really helped and cared for her and she was grateful that HHA have empowered a local team. Our team provided Solomon with more than just medication – they also showed him love, and gave his mother hope in difficult circumstances. Ultimately, this is what HHA’s work is all about, and what we strive to achieve with every beneficiary that we see at New Hope Kajo-Keji.


Throughout May 2024, we are running our Matched May Appeal where all donations towards our global disability work will be doubled by a generous donor. This is an amazing opportunity for your donations to go twice as far. HHA is also being featured on the BBC Radio 4 Appeal presented by Paralymic gold medalist Ellie Simmonds so tune in and find out more about how to support this important work! Get all the info here.
