By Hou Akot Hou


A delegation from Undying Hope International (UHI), a South Sudanese diaspora organization based in the United States, arrived in Aweil Town, Northern Bahr El Ghazal State, on Tuesday.

The team, led by its president, Thiel Thomas Dhel and accompanied by investors and donors, was warmly received by the state government.

Speaking to journalists upon arrival, Mr. Dhel explained the purpose of their visit.

He said they are assessing and identifying areas where UHI can support the state and region, particularly in education and healthcare.

“We are here with investors and donors to conduct preliminary surveys, focusing on school construction and the health sector,” he stated.

He highlighted UHI’s awareness of the critical need for improved education and healthcare facilities in the region, emphasizing these areas as key priorities for both state and national governments despite ongoing challenges.

Northern Bahr el Ghazal State Governor Tong Aken Ngor applauded the initiative undertaken by UHI and its investors, led by Dr. Charles Blach, Co-founder of the UHI board.

He pledged his administration’s full support to facilitate the delivery of services to the local population, particularly in healthcare and rural school construction.

While the national government has invested in education and health, critics argue that quality education and healthcare remain inadequate, with corruption cited as a significant obstacle.
