Thanks for your recent generous donation to Fund Healthcare and medicines in South Sudan.
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.
Driving to Omilling went well because it has just started to rain. The road is very bad but the veteran 4x4 Land rover defender is suited for driving in harsh condition, and in the worst period it fights unpaved road to and from Omilling. In the months to come we will do our best to get the supplies to the clinic to save lives. The population had increased because people are moving from towns to do domestic farming in the village. This had added pressure on the scarce resources not enough to meet the growing demand of the output services on a daily basis.
With your contribution the following are supplied - seven small boxes malaria tablets, four box Terbinafine/hydrochloride, six boxes Daktacort, and boxes Clotrimazole/hydrocortisone.
In the next quarter a new progress field report will be posted, so that you get to know how the impact of your contribution is saving lives in the ground.
At this time, I would assume you have been following the ongoing news about South Sudan's 11 days old uprising. Gunshots continue to be heard in some areas of Juba, and now fighting has intensified, and moved to other States.
The fighting is between the Government and rebel forces. It remains unclear as to how many people have lost their lives during this man-made senseless uprising. Unconfirmed reports state up to 500 people have died in Juba alone and thousands are continuing to seek refuge at UN premises in both Bor and Juba.
Many civilians are now heading to the countryside crossing through the bush of Omilling by footing from Juba. These civilians are fleeing for a fear that a full scale civil war might break out any time. We are facing pressure, and it is a dire situation for the village clinic at this time. I'm not sure how we can ease a pressure of this influx if we don't get help, said Edward, healthcare volunteer. A week ago, it was bad in Juba, now the situation has calm down. We treat 50 fleeing patients a day at Omilling village clinic before they journey to their villages.
We are asking you to support the fleeing people with essential medicines, specially the children.
Our delivery to the clinic has been halted from October to November due to heavy rainfall. Delivery has been resumed even if the road is not safe to drive, but our veteran 4x4 land rover defender will fight the muddy road to Omilling. We are delivering the supplies which could have been delivered two months ago first. From December onward delivery will be made each month once as before.
This December we are delivering the following medicines: 4 small boxes malaria tablets, 2 box Terbinafine/hydrochloride, 2 boxes Daktacort, and 3 boxes Clotrimazole/hydrocortisone. The land Rover Defender has made first delivery after two months of heavy rainfall.
In the next three months a new field report will be posted, so you get to see the impact of your investment how it is improving the lives of beneficiaries in Omilling.

We are appealing that you continue to support this cause, so HopeOfiriha delivers the essential medicines to the villagers which without your investment there are no other ways for the clinic to get medicines for treating them.
We will be sending quarterly field report, so you get to see how your investment is impacting the lives of the lives of women and children, and men in Omilling.
It is saving lives and is working! Some week medicines are supplied daily! Thanks for your recent generous gift to Fund Healthcare & Medicines in South Sudan project. Your commitment to help patients get out of medical-poverty is really appreciated by our board of trustees and those who will benefit most – the children! the women!
You all contributed $11,520-, and still a project needs $3,480-, to get where we want to be in the first quarter. This project is very dynamic in fundraising, and to help patients. The total project budget is divided into three (3) quarterly budgets, and post this amount to donors to fund. So quarterly we will increase our budget up with a smaller amount. Another point worth noting this project buys medicines often due to higher demand this means money.
Your contributions helped Hope Ofiriha between January and march 2013 supplied the village clinic with: three (3) boxes of Terbinafine hydrochloride, two (2) boxes Daktacort, and one (1) boxes Clotrimazole/Hydrocortisone to treat Skin infections, and ten (10) small boxes malaria tablets were also supplied.
We are appealing that you continue supporting this project, so Hope Ofiriha is able to give healthcare services to the vulnerable villagers! the children! and the mothers!
Until this project is fully funded, we will be sending you quarterly field reports, so you get to know how your contribution is impacting the lives of the beneficiaries.
