Despite the glimmer of hope, South Sudan remains a troubled nation. South Sudanese people are continuing to flee into neighboring countries, and long-time refugees in those countries fear to return home.
Thanks for your recent generous donation to Fund Healthcare and medicines in South Sudan project.
With your donation, and money from South Sudanese in Diaspora we purchased and supplied the clinic with eight box malaria tablet, five box hydrochloride, six box Daktacort, and six box Clotrimazole.
It has been raining heavily in the last few months, which resulted in driving to Omilling nearly impossible. However, the veteran 4X4 Land Rover Defender manages well in a harsh environment. It has reached Omilling after a fierce fight with water and muddy road.
If the next generation is to prosper in Omilling it is so important that the issue of children's health is addressed.
The clinic has also been educating parents about the dangers of using witch doctors. This has resulted in a marked decrease in parents taking their children to these people, but of course this has led to an increase in the numbers of children and adults attending the outpatient services, and thus increased treatment costs for the clinic.
All of this has dramatically increased the funding required to run the clinic. In 2014 we need to do more to ensure all those children needing treatment can get it. Every child's life is so precious and we will do whatever it takes to help them.
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.
In the next quarter, a new field progress report will be posted, so that you get to know how the impact of your contribution is saving lives from Omilling the project ground.
