Thanks for your recent generous gift to Give Fruit and a Greener Environment project.
Your contribution has helped purchased - ten banana seedlings, ten passion fruit seedlings, five jackfruit seedlings, and eight eucalyptus seedlings. The Traditional Authority has granted a large area of land to the project to use as a tree nursery.
Fruit trees are grown from infancy in special partner fruit tree nursery in Uganda so that our staff can manage the delicate budding and grafting process. From there, these seedlings are transported to South Sudan to go to one of three places - Fruit trees planted in improved local fruit orchard, Fruit trees given to community to grow, and plant, and Fruit trees given to families as part tree planting project.
The fruit trees are for the benefits of Omilling, in time and with proper care will produce enough fruit for the members to eat, and to sell for profit. The project will also attract commercial activity in the area that will boost the local economy and infrastructures.
In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted so that you get to know the positive changes your contribution is making in Omilling south Sudan.
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.
