Please call me Medina! My first time attending formal education was from a refugee camp in Uganda in 1994 at the age of ten having fled Sudan (now South Sudan) due to war. I attended my first primary one, under a big tree as a classroom and I sat on a rock without a book or a pencil, but I used the sand on the ground as a book and my index finger for writing as a pencil. Learning in English language was not easy, yet I was determined to know how to speak, read and write English. Also, living in the refugee camp for 12 years was hard, but being able to get formal education made it bearable for me. While in a refugee camp, I was able to complete both primary and secondary education before coming to Australia in 2006. In 2013 after completing Certificate IV in Health Science Foundation, I applied to study double degree Bachelor of Nursing and Midwifery. However, I was only accepted to study Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) which I completed in 2017. In 2018 I applied to study Graduate Diploma of midwifery and completed it in January 2021. And on the 13th of April 2021, I was presented with Graduate Diploma of Midwifery in a ceremony at Federation University, Australia-Churchill campus. I’m now a Registered Nurse and a Registered Midwife. My hope is one day to start a medical centre in Obbo, Magwi County, South Sudan with your help, YES TOGETHER WE CAN! Health Is PARAMOUNT!


Glory be to God in the highest, Pr Jim landed safely back in Australia. Thank you all for your prayers. Big thank you goes to Jim for the great work he’s been doing, especially taking his time to travel to meet with the local people not only in Obbo South Sudan, but also in Uganda and Kenya spreading God’s love. May you and your family be blessed abundantly.
Please keep praying for brother George, he will be back in Australia in a week. Together We Can! #TWC

Brother George still supervising the work on the ground, Pr Jim, left Obbo a week ago and expected to return to Australia soon after finalising his visit in East Africa. Prior to Pr Jim leaving Obbo, a leadership training was held, attended by about sixty leaders from different background, also youth workshop was held. The feedback was amazing from those who attended.
The roofing of the school is in progress and the new borehole for the school is being drilled. We are grateful for your endless support, please keep it up. Together We Can! #TWC
