Happy Thanksgiving Holidays- fieldprogress report

miscroscope needed!
miscroscope needed!

“No money equals death”.

A drastic shortage of medical supplies and no microscope in local healthcare post means that patients will not be tested. But instead the health post will continue to treat patients for diarrhea even if they are suffering from malaria. This is a real dilemma, and as a result children are dying when they are treated wrongly for malaria when they are having diarrhea.

Healthcare post needs a microscope urgently to serve Omilling village, especially under the 5 years old. The village has no pave road, and there is no transportation to get to the village to government healthcare clinic. The nearest one is 62 kilometer. The patients cannot track 62 kilometer on foot for diagnostic purposes, and same distance back home.

Hope Ofiriha has asked the Omilling village to wait because this project has yet to attracted the GlobalGiving donors.The villagers remained optimistic, and hope one day a donor will come to help them get the equipment which is badly needed to end the dilemma.

We thank our supports, and Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you for years to come.

Happy Thanksgiving Holidays - Field project

women contributes in community building
women contributes in community building

We need your help to get a hand press soil block production machine for building needs.

Hope Ofiriha finds it difficult to fundraise and deliver the hand press soil block maker so that women can make blocks for the building. They want to contribute in community building.

Hope Ofiriha has informed the women to wait, and be optimistic. They expected the arrival of the equipment earlier but now they have adjusted their expectation since this project has failed to attract GlobalGiving donors.

We are appealing to anybody, or if you know a company that would like to help the poor in Africa connects us to them. Hope Ofiriha will be listening to their offer.

Thanks for ongoing support; Hope Ofiriha wishes you a happy thanksgiving holiday’s season.

Onura women needs beehives
Onura women needs beehives

Why should women do beekeeping in Onura sub village south Sudan?

 Honey is money, delicious, and nutritious. How can women obtain honey to combat malnutrition? The answer is in beekeeping. By keeping bees, they can obtain large quantities of honey and raw beeswax for home consumption and for income generations.

Other benefits of beekeeping are as follows:
Tropical apiculture is cheap. It does not involve mass feeding of bees, because the insects can provide their own food year round, there is no need to feed the bees. All the necessary inputs required for beekeeping are available locally. Individually, and cooperative societies can initiate it with only limited funds. Beekeeping is self-reliant. It does not depend on importation of foreign equipment of inputs.

From September to November, our beekeeping activities have been limited because we don’t have the fund to buy the materials to produce beehives to distribute to women in Onura sub village. Despite this hard time they are united and optimistic. They have hope in themselves, and are good in helping each other with local resources they have. Hope Ofiriha plans to buy one smoker machine with the funding from our GlobalGiving donors to give to one woman who needs it for honey harvesting.

Even if the economy is bad currently, Hope Ofiriha remains committed to its mission and to our GlobalGiving donors.Their donations made our work possible in the field.

Thanks for your ongoing support, and we are looking forward to partner with you for years.
