Thanks for recent generous gift to Stop Moms from Dying in childbirth project.
Only months ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming months may bring for the world's youngest country.
Through Land Rover Defender we are able to deliver the supplies to the clinic, despite the bad road caused by heavy rainfall. The following items are delivered to ONURA Survival Clinic - 6 birth mats, 8 boxes cotton wool, 4 pieces syringe & needle, 5 sets of umbilical cord clam, 6 maternity pads , and 2 set delivery instruments.
South Sudanese women are 155 times likely to die in childbirth and pregnancy than Westerners, a ministry of Health in Juba report says.
Overall, an Omilling woman have a higher chance of dying in childbirth and pregnancy, but through your contribution many deaths have been avoided. Six mothers gave birth safely to six beautiful babies last year.
The death rates could have been reduced by 99% if mothers had access to emergency obstetric care. Many women still deliver their children alone or with untrained attends, and we are raising awareness to give birth in the clinic, says mid-wife Abwoo.
After a quarter a new update field report will be sent, so you get to know the impact your contribution create in the lives of new babies and their moms.
Thanks for your recent generous donation to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan.
During the production at Omilling, we had one machine on site producing up to 500 bricks a day with a team of 2 men. The soil excavated from red marram was used to make the bricks. Francis stabilized block specialist with the community made 33,100 interlocking soil blocks with a mixture of soil, cement and water compacted with a manually operated machine. The benefits were actualized in the school’s beauty to two already built classrooms, the skills passed on, the productive use of soil and the firewood saved.
With your contribution the soil blocks have been produce enough to build six classrooms. Francis, and the community have really worked hard to reach the intended target before next rainfall starts.
This project is still far away from completion, but the progress is good indeed. Building two classrooms in a year helps in completing the project in the end. In the next quarter a new field update be sent, so that you know what your contribution is helping from the ground.
Thanks for your generous gift to Prevent HIV-AID through Awareness in South Sudan.
Public health education is a vital step to Omilling rural community understanding health issues. Since we started our HIV awareness campaign the outcomes have been really good for the community. We have four local volunteers to visit each Sunday to give a one hour talk followed by 30 minutes question and answer season. This has been a very successful initiative, and for a small investment of time, there has been an increase of 200 people between January and March tested for HIV.
This shall be followed by two hardest educational HIV workshops to produce maximum level of awareness at a village level with each gathering lasting 6 hours twice a month. Two HIV victims shall talk on how to avoid catching it, traditional leaders shall talk why is important to be faithful to your partner, and a Health-worker from Magwi Primary Healthcare shall talk how to live with HIV. At the end of the workshop the villagers will sing a song saying HIV is an enemy to live, HIV victims shall cry because their best lives have been contaminated by the virus - this is meant to create high level of HIV -AID awareness.
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 in Omilling.
