Clinical Supervisor Sudan
Rawan was drawn to Hope Walks so she could be part of something truly life-changing for children born with clubfoot. She loves to help resolve people’s problems and admits to the “guilty” satisfaction in helping people integrate into their communities. “It’s the toughest job I’ll ever love,” she says. Prior to joining Hope Walks, she worked for Khartoum Chesire Home.

About the Country
Sudan gained its independence from the Great Britain in 1956. Differences between the north and south part of the country led to a civil war and eventual formation of South Sudan as a sovereign nation in 2011. The Blue Nile and White Nile meet in Khartoum to form the Nile and heads northward from there through Egypt and into the Mediterranean Sea. The country has approximately 70 native languages.
The clubfoot program in Sudan was newly created in 2021. Please pray for this young program to continue to grow and for word to get out about the treatment option available to families in Sudan.
