We wish you a merry X-mass and a happy new year!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan project. Your committed to help the needy to get out of poverty is really appreciated by our trustees and those will benefit most – the children!

This is a high valued cause which is worth supporting, and the project has been rolling since from the beginning of 2012. The villagers are currently producing interlocking soil blocks. Their goal is to produce 70,000 pieces of interlocking soil blocks to complete the school building project. Hope Ofiriha has purchased 100 bags cement (50kg) which the villagers are using for production.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They need your help to build Mairo Primary School for current and future children generation.

While our communities had just started to adjust from the shocks and devastation of prolonged civil war, they were yet met by airstrikes and ground assaults launched against South Sudan in the bordering states by Sudan armed forces and militant allies. This brought more unnecessary displacement, vulnerability, anguish and human suffering.

Life in the South Sudan – Sudan bordering states became unbearable as cost of living steadily skyrocketed. While two nations have signed a deal to promote peaceful coexistence, the impact of recent conflict include Abyei has caused humanitarian needs to the affected people.

We therefore, request our partners to continue their support to Hope Ofiriha and more importantly to the needy and vulnerable groups in the communities. We look forward to working with all of you in 2013.

May I take this opportunity to wish our donors and partners a Merry Christmas and very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year 2013!
