Dr. Lo'diong Jackson

I was born in 1985 in Yei, Central Equatoria State, South Sudan. I lost my father to the Sudan civil war in 1989. When I was 7 years old, in 1992, my uncle took me to live with him in Khartoum where I started formal education. At school, the main language of instruction was Arabic until High School.

As a boy, my dream was to become a doctor so that I can help people. To pursue my dream, I joined the medical school at the University of Juba in Khartoum in 2003. This was a difficult journey for me, but with the help and encouragement of my uncle I completed medical school in 2010.

My goal is to help those in need and mentor young medical professionals to assist in the development of South Sudan. I am also very passionate about helping orphans in South Sudan to give them a chance at receiving education to unlock their potential.

I love working for The Healing Kadi Foundation because it has provided me a stage to achieve my goals and deliver sustainable medical services to the people of South Sudan. The Healing Kadi family is warm, welcoming, and dedicated to helping those in need.

I am excited to travel with The Healing Kadi Foundation the path of delivering sustainable health care to South Sudan with the community at the core of its focus. In the near future, the first modern and training hospital will be completed which will allow medical professionals in South Sudan to practice evidence based medicine using the right tools to better serve the community.
