SUDEF’s current projects are located in Kalthok, a village in Awerial County, Lakes State of South Sudan.    The village sits several miles west of the White Nile River and is located about a 3 - 4 hour drive northwest from Juba, the capital of South Sudan.

The village of Kalthok is now more accessible due to improvements made to the main road that runs between Juba and Wau, Yirol and Rumbek to the north - bringing more potential for commerce along this heavily traveled route.

SUDEF currently has two projects in Kalthok - the medical clinic and our new Maternal and Child Health and Training Unit. 

This region is rich agriculturally, with tributaries of the Nile making future irrigation possible, thereby giving it great potential for year round crops.
