Thanks for your recent generous gift to Give Fruit and a Greener Environment 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.
More than one million people have been forced from their homes by the ongoing conflict in South Sudan, the UN says. Of these, 803,200 have been displaced within the country, and another 254,000 have fled to neighboring countries, according to the latest UN report. It warns that the situation is likely to get worse as the violence continues.
Fruit trees grow from infancy in the nursery, so that the local volunteers can manage the dedicate budding a grafting process. Then from there, seedling fruits go to three divisions - fruit trees are distributed to families, fruit trees are given to community groups whom the project helps to grow, plant, and look after their fruit trees, and fruit trees are planted in the project improved orchards.
Since the project began years ago, it grows mango, guava, pawpaw, avocado, and banana trees. While some fruit trees grow naturally in Magwi, trees are often poorly managed, and some fruit trees like banana trees suffer from viruses which mean they do not produce fruit.
With your contribution the project has purchased the seeds of ecycalptus tree, Avocado, passion, jack fruit, and yellow banana to start a new fruit nursery.
Due to the growing insecurity concern the project will relocate the fruit tree nursery from Omilling to Magwi center. Hope Ofiriha has applied for a land to set up a new nursery, and the positive answer is expected soon.
In the next quarter HOPE Ofiriha will post a new field update report so you get to know what impact is your contribution is helping to creating in Omilling South Sudan.
In October 2013: your donation enable HopeOfiriha bought seedlings from a nursery in northern Uganda. These are:100 pawpaw seedlings, 60 avocado seedlings, and 40 eucalyptus seedlings.
The road to Omilling was very too bad due to heavy rainfall that stopped the delivery. So the seedlings were kept at the nursery were it was purchased from. First we need to transport the last seedlings to plant at the project site, and when this is done, order for new seedlings. Even if the road is not 100% good, our veteran 4x4 Land Rover Defender is suitable to drive in bad environment.
In a next three months, a new field update will be posted, so you get to know the impact your contribution while we are implementing the project.
New tree is a start of new hope!

Fruit planting is good for the environment, and provide a healthier food diets to the villagers. In time of scarcity they stand as food security. It is also the potential source of income because the timbers and fruit varieties will be sold to promote the economy and development locally. This is a great project for current and future generation.
The following fruit seedlings have been supplied to the tree nurseries to mark the year end of 2012:20 Indian mango seedlings, 10 jack fruit seedlings, and 5 yellow banana seedlings.

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!
