This need is fully funded! Thanks to our generous donors of our Reduce Hunger and Women's Workloads In South Sudan project. Women are happy! Girls are dancing! Both we said are free!Giving a grinding mill to women will provide stable food and reduce hunger in the community. More importantly, eliminating one of women's most time-consuming domestic chores will leave them more time to earn a living, grow food to feed their families, and create a better life.Hope Ofiriha's team are now searching for a grinding mill to buy, once this machine is purchased we will post you the up-date.Thank you GlobalGiving.org!

Culturally, South Sudanese value large families!Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop South Sudanese Moms from Dying in Childbirth project. Your commitment to help the needy get out of poverty is really appreciated by our board of trustees, and those who will benefit most - the babies!
Culturally, South Sudanese value large families and women in South Sudan on average give birth five times - or more in their lifetime. This makes obstetrics a very important part of Omilling local healthcare system, and access to quality delivery facilities and skilled birth attendants a critical element in addressing women's health at a national level.
Traditionally in Omilling, women give birth at home with the assistance of their mother, mother-in-law, or a traditional birth attendant (TBA). Most have no medical training but rather learned their "skills" on the job, and it is common for women to experience complications during birth which would lead to the death of the mother, the baby, or both.
To address these issues, Omilling Traditional Authority passed a by-law in 2012 requiring women to give birth at a local healthcare facility with a Skilled Birth Assistant (SBA).
From January - to - March 2013, the project supplied Onura Survival Maternal Maternity Clinic with these items: five (5) sets birthing mats, one (1) set umbilical cord calm, one (1) set delivery kit, twenty (20) pieces syringes & needles, and two (2) big boxes cotton wool.
These Moms are eager to see this project progressing, and need your help to stock more supplies.
Since this project is still under implementation, we will be sending you the quarterly report. You will get to know what your donation has helped impact, and what we have achieved.
