Don't Discriminate HIV-AID Victims

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!


Thanks for your generous gift to Prevent HIV-AID through Awareness project.

 

There is no political agreement reach between the government and the rebel forces despite IGAD sponsored peace talks since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse day by day and hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.

The local HIV-AIDs educational workshop that we held has proven to be useful not only for Omilling but other surrounding villages. Through these workshops, villagers are getting to know the danger pose by HIV-AIDs which was not there before the start of this project. The level of awareness has increased, and traditional artists are composing songs with an aim to educate the community on how to avoid catching the virus with a strong message of "one wife one husband." For a woman to get a micro loan, it is mandatory that she has attended three workshops by the time of submitting her application for loan. This strategy had attracted large attendance from women, and even good number of men continues to increase.

This year 200 HIV-AIDs workshops held, 1358 villagers attended, and 132 pamplets were distributed with your donations and funds donated by South Sudanese community in Diaspora (USA, UK, and Australia).

We have now increased six victims volunteering as trainers. They hold talks with villagers how to use a condom by demonstrating how to wear it. Due to cultural sensitive this did not go well with villagers. They are encouraging local leaders to talk on the dangers of AID, and promote a policy 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.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year!

Thanks for recent generous gift to Stop Moms from Dying in childbirth.
There is no political agreement reach between the government and the rebel despite IGAD sponsored peace talks since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse day by day. Hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.
 
Due to bad and muddy road caused by rain it has been almost impossible to deliver the critical needed, necessary materials to Onura Survival clinic to help expectant mothers to deliver safely. To make matter worst the 4x4 Defender is grounded due to an accident. The materials were given 20km away from Omilling to clinic staff because Noah is not 4x4 to drive off-road and severe environment. The community will use other means to get materials to the clinic.
 
With your donations, the following were supplied; five boxes birthing mats, seven boxes cotton wool, eight small boxes syringes & needles. According to report from clinic six mothers, are expected to give birth this December.
 
A quote from a beneficiary expecting to give birth this December - " You are giving me and my coming baby new hope. Before I had given birth to three children under an appalling condition - "this time, I give birth to the enhanced state and a village clinic to save my life and my baby." Thanks for being kind and donating the materials that I cannot get without your support.
 
We will be sending you a new field update after three months so that you get to know the impact your contribution is making in the lives of new babies and their Moms.

Malaria must be Eradicated

Your help made these kids free from Malaria
Your help made these kids free from Malaria

Hope Ofiriha wishes you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year!

Thanks for your long term support to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan.

There is no political agreement reach between the government and the rebels despite IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup, South Sudan is getting worse day by day. Hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.

 Hope Ofiriha continues to work with local communities in this very dangerous circumstances.

Malaria remains a threat to children's life in Omilling. It is not common to meet a child in a village that has not been attached by Malaria.

With your contributions, and together with donations from South Sudan communities in Diaspora the project had purchased forty insecticides mosquito nets and distributed to worst affected families. These nets will protect children against mosquito bites with a net covering three children.

The project aims to secure one microscope. When a child is sick in the village from an unknown disease is presumed to be malaria. Even if when the child might be suffering from a stomach egg. This had caused much suffering than helping because of treating them with wrong medicine for wrong disease. Many children had become drug-resistance. For this reason, a microscope is a solution for testing blood sample to stop misdiagnosis from spreading in Omilling village.

This project has not reached its goal, and we kindly ask you to stand with us to the very end. In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted to let you know new development.
