At a time when people are fleeing from South Sudan and the U.S. government is urging Americans to stay away, an Omaha doctor is making plans to go there.
Dr. Joseph Dumba, a family practitioner at Methodist Physicians Clinic, said his annual medical mission trip is on, probably in March. But because of the instability in South Sudan, he won't take a large group as he usually does. Instead, he'll be accompanied by just one or two other doctors.
