By Hou Akot Hou

New Life Ministry, a church-based charity organization has embarked on education and health projects in Aweil West County.

Chief Executive Officer, (CEO) of the organization, James Lual Atak said they offer free health services at Nyamlel in Aweil West County.

Atak flew in from Juba on Monday with a team of six doctors to give free medication to the local residents who are sick.

He told this No. 1 Citizen Daily Newspaper on Wednesday that the services were offered free of charge due to the plight of the people.

“Our people are suffering and that is why we have taken the bold decision to come and render them medical services here. There are critical tropical diseases affecting people here and as New Life Ministry, we need to render them service” he narrated

Atak appealed to residents who have not come for the services, to hurry up and reach before the doctors go back to Juba, in a week’s time.

One of the residents, Adut Garang said in a phone Interview that the opportunity was a godsend one, of which, he was pleased that a son of the area offered them free services.

“I have been suffering from joint and abnormal pains for ages. I am too impoverished with nothing to sell away to get treatment. But now, these doctors have given me enough drugs and they even gave us free water and tea” She expounded.

She urged other people who are neighboring Nyamlel to hurry up for free medical aid.
