On behalf of Luacjang community in Australia and other diaspora countries, Luacjang community are appealing for a support from general public regarding recent pandemic outbreak of cholera in Luacjang community, in South Sudan, 2017. The cholera has left a devastated effect to the Luacjang community in South Sudan and abroad. Due to severe lack of economic development and infrastructure in Luacjang areas, the most affected regions were pastoral lands whereby many people keeps cattle for living. However, village areas were affected by cholera outbreak with suspecting of contaminated waterway and environmental pollution.
As reported, the outbreak of acute watery diarrhoea was discovered when the news break to the community of Laucjang across the globe due to huge tragic loss of hundred lives and victims hospitalised as result of cholera virus. There were no clinics or treatment facilities in affected areas of cholera outbreak, leaving those affected to be carried physically miles away due to lack of transportation and immediate medical attention. Tragically, there were many confirmed cases of deaths from cholera outbreak which many victims reportedly died while being transported on-route to be rescued. Tragically, the cholera outbreak has then left a huge vacuum in any future preventive efforts to eradicate cholera outbreak. From today, we still have ongoing cases of cholera, let alone families and community members who continued to mourned for the lost loved ones. Therefore, there is a fear of a major return similar cholera pandemic reported in 2017, as no proper health facilities and intervention in place since the large outbreak.
Chorea is preventable disease, therefore we are appealing to the greater publics, partners and community members to assist Luacjang community raise funds to improve on general sanitation measures of cholera prevention efforts, such as clean waterway and waste management processes, as well as medical supplies. The primary objective is to educate cholera in affected areas.
Laucjang community in Victoria and in other diaspora countries appeals to public to support affected Luacjang community in South Sudan for the following actions.
- Build a health clinic in Luacjang, especially affected areas , as there are no facilities.
- To equip medical officers with adequate medical supplies, sanitary equipments, and education effort to educate public on cholera eradication.
- To increase essential medicines and glucose drips (dextrose), nutritional food products to support victims in any outbreak occurrences, especially children and elderly.
When cases of cholera outbreak occurs, the most vulnerable victims are the ones with low immune system and malnutrition, frail sufferers such as children, pregnant women and elderly in greater risk.
Any funds generated will not be delivered to an individual or any private organisations but will go directly and carefully be handed to build and fund medical facilities .
