WAU, 24 February 2017 [Gurtong] - During the graduation ceremony, the Institute’s Director, Sister Garcy Adichiraryil said that the college has so far graduated over 100 nurses and midwives.

“We have 23 graduates nurses and midwives, among the 23, 13 are nurses and 10 of them are midwives, we are offering a diploma in midwifery and diploma in nursing, so far we have graduated 118 nurses and midwives and 93 community health  workers,” said  Garcy.

“Today we are going to start a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. The message I have for the graduates, they are for the people specially to save lives, save lives for the babies, save lives for the mothers and save lives of the people,” said said.

Among the graduates is Angelina Richard who said they are determined to work hard in order to reduce the high rate of maternal mortality rate in the country.

“We are going to put more efforts so that we reduce the maternal mortality rate in South Sudan because our women mostly in the village, most of them don’t want to go to the hospital because they don’t know the benefit. For them if a woman delivers the first child at home and was successful, she hopes that the next pregnancy, she will also be successful but that is not the case.Pregnancy differs, sometime the first one may be good then the next one may not and she may have some complications,” said Angelina.

On his part, the Wau State Governor, Andrea Mayar Acho who was at the occasion urged the graduates to go to their communities and offer them services.
