In the border town of Renk, South Sudan, a three-room health clinic supports the medical needs of a large city, the surrounding areas, and the never-ending stream of people passing through this border town. There are low food supplies and high rates of malaria. Medical care comes in the form of a midwife, a physician, and medicine.
There is never enough medicine.
One of our global ministries is in Renk, South Sudan, where St. Barnabas helps pay the salaries for two pastors and where we donate money for desperately needed medicine at a local clinic. This ministry is founded on a personal relationship with Bishop Joseph who visits us annually and gives us a first-hand account of the pressing need in Renk. Every year St. Barnabas holds a concert to benefit the clinic. Professional musicians from St. Barnabas and Saint Margaret of Scotland volunteer their time and talents and provide an evening of extraordinary classical music. In the last three years, St. Barnabas raised over $30,000 for the clinic.
100% of the proceeds are used to purchase medicine and fund the Renk Health Clinic. Some of our own parishioners have visited the Diocese of Renk in South Sudan, and have developed relationships with those suffering.
