Micro-loan gives us confidence and future promise!

Thanks for your recent generous donation to Microloan for South Sudanese Refugee women in Uganda project. Your committed to helping the needy to get out of poverty is tremendously appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most – the children!

Fifteen (15) borrowers repaid their loans they took in December 2012, and the remaining beneficiaries will pay the ultimate instalments by June end. This is a significant news from our beneficiaries in the outskirts of Kampala.

What next? Your donation and repaid loans will be recycled so is borrowed to 20 new beneficiaries. These women are in training in business skills for two weeks,  and after the loan will beddisbursed for them to  develop  their enterprises for generating income.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing, and they need your help so they can push their opponent - poverty!

A new field update will be posted again after three months to let you know the impact of your contributions, and what changes it has made in people's living conditions.

Fruits of your support - 35 children at Trinity primary School!
Thanks for your recent generous gift to Send 100 Deportee Children In School in Uganda project. Your commitment to help the deportee children get an education is really appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most: the children!

In next few days, children will return to school after a first team holiday in Uganda. Whenever I visited Trinity Primary  School, I got to see the fruits of your support, every child in a program called me Aunty! Aunty I need a bread! Aunty I need peanut butter! These children are so sweet and kind! It was a scene of happiness because they have quickly adapted to the  harsh living conditions in Uganda.

You are making such a big difference for these children. It is thanks to you that 35 children can study well, and sleep well, knowing they will be safe from malaria-carrying mosquitoes at night, and healthy for a school in the morning.

These children are very eager to see that this project is progressing, and we need your ongoing support to keep them at school. Our program coordinator sent this report from kampala.

Hands Up to give Microscopes

Malaria is an enemy to children in Africa
Malaria is an enemy to children in Africa

When a woman vomits she is condemned a HIV victim without testing! Thanks for your recent generous gift to save people from Dying from Malaria in south Sudan 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 children!

This is a life-saving cause worth your support, but due to unknown reason it has been attracting supporters at a very low rate. However, Hope Ofiriha remains optimistic our donors will give the microscopes so Omilling fights malaria which had been, and still attacking the needy. Without you giving a Hand Up, not a Hand Out, the virus will continue knapping the children, the mothers, or both. Malaria is a bad enemy in the rural part of south Sudan. What can we do together to help Omilling wins a war against our common enenmy - Malaria?

You all contributed $690-, and still a project needs only $620 to reach the budget goal. Let us gear "Hands UP out of Poverty". The funds you raised are deposited in "a restricted fund - bank account".

There is no facility to test malaria, and patients suffering from different diseases are always being treated for malaria in a village clinic, although they may be having stomach problems. When a woman vomits she is condemned a HIV victim without testing. This is dangerous, and we need your help to address this issue.

We are requesting you to continue your support to Hope Ofiriha to give the vulnerable villagers the microscopes they have been longing for years.
