Recurring Donation Campaign & Field project report

Women Onura village south Sudan
Women Onura village south Sudan

Why do so many women still die in pregnancy or childbirth?

Every minute, at least one woman dies from complications related to pregnancy or childbirth – that means 529 000 women a year. In addition, for every woman who dies in childbirth, around 20 more suffer injury, infection or disease – approximately 10 million women each year. (WHO).

In Onura village there are direct two factors that accounts for maternal deaths: lack of “childbirth delivery bed”, and delivery kits. These are fundamentally responsible.

Women need not die in childbirth. We must give a young woman the information and support she needs to control her reproductive health, help her through a pregnancy, and care for her and her newborn well into childhood. The vast majority of maternal deaths could be prevented if women in Onura village have access to childbirth delivery bed, skilled care during pregnancy, and after first month after delivery.

Jennifer Leo has given birth to a baby after a long labour. With your help Hope Ofiriha provided the syringes, sterile gowns, gloves, and 2 maternity pads that assisted in the delivery process. There are two girls who are expecting to give births in Onura village. They too, need help to give birth safely.

Quotes from Jennifer Leo:
We need a childbirth delivery bed, and a set of delivery kits. When we have these facilities women will not be dying in childbirth. Please help!

But we are facing the challenges of raising money to help more women. We are looking for 10 people to sign up for recurring monthly donation. We ask you to sign for $10 – only. Having $10 from 10 different people each month is better than 10 people donating $1200 in December as a Christmas gift as one time donation. $10 – each month is a lot of money and can help mothers in Onura village, South Sudan. In charity there are no big or small amounts. Each cent counts!

Thanks to our donors! Thanks to GlobalGiving! Thanks for helping Jennifer Leo!  Without your help we would have not been in this position to help in Onura village.

In next 3 months we will post the new project updated, and also to tell how your contributions are impacting the lives of women and their babies. Hope Ofiriha appreciates partnering with you and hopes we will continue to team together until the goal of this project is achieved.

GlobalGiving is giving away $12,000 in bonus awards during this campaign!

$10 basic medication for 5 patients suffering from fever

In March Hope Ofiriha delivered small quantities of medicines to a healthcare post to treat the needy. About 20 individuals were given medicines and also the visiting doctors checked a number of patients.

In the past it the community has no source of medicines and when people fall sick they stay home hoping the illness will go away naturally. Some of the patients were practicing blood – letting and when this didn’t work they die home safely. But since the started this project we are happy we are helping patients. Several children are benefiting as they top our priority list. They are suffering severely every day. Hope Ofiriha is delivering malaria queen-syrup for treating malaria victim. We helped 10 children, and paid a bus fares for a pregnant girl to visit a gynecologist for her complicated pregnancy.

Your contributions are making a huge impact to the lives of villagers. Thank you for giving children malaria syrups, thank you for helping pregnant young girl, and thanks for helping men and women. Big thanks to GlobalGiving! This project is saving lives! We are simply impressed!

Recurring Monthly Donation Campaign & Field Report

Women waiting for help to start beekeeping project
Women waiting for help to start beekeeping project

$10 will buy 2 hive tools to operate 2 beekeeping organizations

To start beekeeping simple and it doesn’t need a huge capital but in reality a lot work is done and a lot of time is involved.

In the past people were doing this as a hobby. Beekeeping is like farming you have to stay on top of the market demands and deliver the honey at the right time, and right place.

Since we started working in Onura many women knew only one thing that honey is sweet but had no idea if it can be operated as a business. With training most know now; that beekeeping gives ripple incomes to get local women out of extreme poverty; that beekeeping gives candles for lighting; that beekeeping provides high nutritious food value; that beekeeping provides medicines to small children. These benefits were derived through training by our Beekeeping trainers.

This project is doing well and it has support of Onura village. The first group women that received bee-hives are now operating their beekeeping enterprise independently. Hope Ofiriha remains impressive with the outcomes of this effort.

But we are facing the challenges of money to help more women. We are hoping you will continue with us in a battle against poverty. We are looking for 10 people to sign up for recurring monthly donation. We ask you to sign for $10 – only. Having $10 from 10 different people each month is better than 10 people donating $1200 at once in December as “Christmas gift”. $10 each month is a big amount in Africa. In charity there is no small or big amount. Each cent counts!

 Thanks to our donors! Thanks to GlobalGiving! Without your support we have no way to help. Three plastic jerry-cons and six bee-hives were distributed to three women in March.

In three months to come we will bring the new project updates and to tell you what the impact of your contributions is making in lives of women in south Sudan.
