Women still have to squat on their knees for hours to grind maize kernels to provide foods to their families.
The women in Omilling village have to squat on their knees for several hours to grind maize kernels to provide foods for their families. This is not an easy work for women who are already torn apart from responsibilities. It is women’s duty to feed their families, fetch water, wash children, and serve their husbands. They are subject into slavery throughout their marriage life by working almost a whole doing farming. They have no time to relax!
By providing a grinding mill to Omilling women will have, good health, time to relax, girls will be allowed to study, time to do home work and the community will get constant supply of food to eliminate hunger whic is a major problem.
With the help of our GlobalGiving donors Hope Ofiriha has raised $1,275. The grinding mill will be provided when $7,500 is secured. Hope Ofiriha is working hard to make sure the budget goal is achieve.
Once again we want to thank our donors for their ongoing support to our small scale projects in south Sudan in 2010. Without their contributions, we could have not been in the position to help destitute women, and children.Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you in years to come!

In south Sudan a staggering number of women die in child birth. Dr. Lokang discovers by providing a child birth delivery bed will wipe out this problem in ONURA healthcare post - rural settlement.
Children in Onura settlement are born without the assistance of a trained health specialist. They rely instead on traditional birth attendants. They get summoned at the last minute when it is too late to make a journey to the Onura healthcare post.
But they are not medically trained and their "labour suite" is a spartan mud hut with a mat on the floor for a bed. They deliver about two –to- three babies a month. Nevertheless, they admit it is far from ideal.
The main problem is that the community here doesn't have the money to hire a car to get to the nearest government run hospital.
With funding from our donors, Hope Ofiriha provided Onura healthcare post with two maternity pads, and cotton wool to assist expectant mothers during child birth.
We thank our Globalgiving donors for their ongoing support and Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you in 2011- and years to come.
The staff of Hope ofiriha and volunteers wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season, to your family, friends, and colleagues at dinner table!
Without your help 300 Sudanese refugee boys and girls cannot go to schools in Uganda.
Hope Ofiriha sponsors 5 students to attend a primary school in Uganda in 2010. Two of our previous volunteers are individual sponsoring certain students to go to expensive (by Ugandan standard) private boarding primary and secondary schools. Although this is an excellent opportunity, we are finding that volunteers are being pestered to sponsor individuals, and this is creating a certain amount of jealousy. We would like to promote sponsorship for both boys and girls on the basis of achievement so that children have fair chance of getting sponsorship. Therefore, we are looking for sponsors to pay all or part of these fees which work out at a total of $420 per year per student or monthly $35.
Two of our sponsored students (Okello, Jolly) will join secondary school in 2011. They have sat for their primary leaving exams, and we are expecting the two will do well.
Quote from Okello – beneficiary;To my sponsor whom I don’t know – I could not get an education and have a good future – but because my sponsor is kind "I have a good future.
The staff of Hope Ofiriha and volunteers wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season, to your family, friends, and colleagues!
