We are fighting Our Common Enemy

HIV & AIDs Educational workshop is important!
HIV & AIDs Educational workshop is important!

Thanks for your generous gift to Prevent HIV-AID through Awareness in South Sudan.

South Sudan on the Brink of Famine as Fighting Rages On. Aid agencies predict that South Sudan could be headed for the worst famine since the 1984 Ethiopian famine.

The United Nations has warned that a famine looms if there is no end to the fighting that erupted in mid-December between the government and rebels. More than a third of the nation's roughly 11 million people could be on the brink of starvation by the end of the year, UN officials claim.

Additional aid is needed to combat this alarming crisis.

The local workshop we do is very important for the rural community to understand the danger pose by HIV/AIDs. Before we started this campaign, the level of awareness was low in Omilling. These days women are talking openly about it. We have also introduced a new strategy to attract villagers to attend the educational workshop. We tell women in Omilling to get a microloan one must attend HIV/AIDs workshop. This have boasted the attendance very high from 100 to 450 per month. Women and young girls are our target, but we do allow men to attend as well.

Two-HIV victims (now trainer) have been talking to villagers on how to avoid contracting it, encouraging traditional leaders to talk to villagers on the dangers of the virus, and promote the policy of one wife one husband. We do it aggressively and loudly.

In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted, so that you get to know what your contribution is helping to impact from the ground in Omilling.

I need your help to give birth safely!

Thanks for recent generous gift to Stop Moms from Dying in childbirth project.

South Sudan on the Brink of Famine as Fighting Rages On. Aid agencies predict that South Sudan could be headed for the worst famine since the 1984 Ethiopian famine.

The United Nations has warned that a famine looms if there is no end to the fighting that erupted in mid-December between the government and rebels. More than a third of the nation's roughly 11 million people could be on the brink of starvation by the end of the year, UN officials claim.

Additional aid is needed to combat this alarming crisis.

It has started to rain very heavily, and the unpaved road to Omilling is completely bad to drive. We are committed to serving mothers and young girls, and through a land Rover Defender we are delivering the supplies to ONURA SURVIVAL CLINIC. In this last quarter, we delivered these items. four-birth mats, ten-box cotton wool, ten syringe, two-set umbilical cord clam, and 8-maternity pads.

Through your help more lives have been safe, and last month two young girls were under a critical condition when they were giving birth. They cannot give birth normally because their body too weak to pushed out babies. We took them to the main hospital where they get help.

After a quarter, a new update field report will be sent, so you get to know the impact your contribution create in the lives of new babies and their moms.

Education is our hope for future generation!

Thanks for your recent generous donation to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan.

South Sudan on the Brink of Famine as Fighting Rages On. Aid agencies predict that South Sudan could be headed for the worst famine since the 1984 Ethiopian famine.

The United Nations has warned that a famine looms if there is no end to the fighting that erupted in mid-December between the government and rebels. More than a third of the nation's roughly 11 million people could be on the brink of starvation by the end of the year, UN officials claim.

Additional aid is needed to combat this alarming crisis.

We are very excited that Mairo Primary School is under way to construction in Omilling South Sudan. About 95% of the children cannot read or write. Our goal is eradicate this high level of illiteracy. The rain is halting our supplies, road is bad, and insecurity is discouraging vehicle to transport the supplies to the project site. We are looking for a truck.

When completed, the school will help nurture the minds of the children who have witnessed unspeakable things during the long war. The school will also provide children with love, comfort, and hope for the future. We are confident that the school will also bring unity and build a spirit of peace and reconciliation among four different villages.

We have received $13,500 from Trolltech Foundation (phase two), which will be added to your donation to purchase building materials. Although this is good news, but still we are underfunded. The fund will construct the classroom to a beam ring level as fundraising is ongoing.

With your fund, 300 bag (50kg) of cement is purchased, money set aside to pay for ten trip of sand, ten trip of quarry stones, and ten trip of hardcore stones. We also bought 12 pieces of the iron bar and added two-wheel barrows.

This project is still far away from completion, but the progress is good indeed. Building two classrooms in a year helps in completing the project in the end. In the next quarter a new field update be sent, so that you know what your contribution is helping from the ground.
