L.A. Times Profiles South Sudanese Man Trying To Improve Health Care With Ultrasound Machine

Los Angeles Times: A man and his machine in Africa — and his quest to bring health care to his people
“…The story of [Seme] Khemis and his [ultrasound] machine is that of one man’s struggle to make a small difference in a country ravaged by war and neglect. Khemis, who is 31 and has a thin face, gentle eyes, and a manner that veers between breathless enthusiasm and stoic compassion, is not a doctor. But he is intimately acquainted with South Sudan’s impoverished health system. Bringing health care to one tiny community was the thing that he felt he could do that would help most…” (Dixon, 10/5).
