Kukani Tutu listens to a prenatal heartbeat in the St. Daniel Comboni Catholic Hospital in Wau, South Sudan, as Sister Dorothy Dickson, a member of Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, observes. Tutu is a student nurse from the Catholic Health Training Institute in Wau. Dickson is from New Zealand, and serves as director of the Institute. Health care is minimal in the newly independent country, and many religious groups are providing personnel and training to fill the gap. The Institute is coordinated by Solidarity with South Sudan, an international consortium of more than 200 religious congregations that trains teachers, health workers and pastoral personnel in several locations throughout South Sudan..
