Villagers die every day in Omilling from fevers, infections and vitamin deficiencies left untreated because there are no medicines or nutritional supplements available.
On 08- Feb - 2011 president Omer al-Bashir, issued a republican decree accepting the final results of referendum, which supports the separation of the South into an independent state. North and South Sudan are presently engaged in talks to resolve the sensitive issues, which includes sharing of oil revenues, demarcation of boarders, and the contested oil-rich Abyei region.
Simple medications which are taken for granted in USA and Japan are not available to the Omilling Village. In these two countries they assume that aspirin to reduce high fevers and antibiotics will automatically be available when they need them. But in south Sudan there are no medicines to treat the patients.
To the poorest of the poor, these medicines can literally save lives if they can obtain them. Villagers die every day from fevers, infections and vitamin deficiencies left untreated because there are no medicines or nutritional supplements available. Very only health post exist is frequently run out of items as basic as gauge, bandages and rubbing alcohol to cleanse the dress simple cuts.
Illnesses and wounds, otherwise easily managed with proper resources, escalate to life-damaging or even life-threatening tragedies. Hope Ofiriha often delivers medicines to Loheru Healthcare Post with the help from GlobalGiving donors. Funding is needed to make sure these urgently – needed medicines reach the poor women, men and children in Omilling village of south Sudan.
For every $10 donated last year, we were able to provide medicines to treat 5 patients suffering from fever, and $50 to give medication to 200 children suffering with pneumonia. That means if you $100 donation it will send 10 women to visit a gynecologist for complicated pregnancy.
In the months ahead we will have lots of news to report on the impact of your donation and clearly to demonstrate how your contributions are making changes in the lives of the poorest of the poor. We are looking forward in working with you in years to come until the goal of this project is achieve.
Thanks for joining hands with Hope Ofiriha!
They don’t have to die – Omilling village needs help to get medicines.
In a case of a diarrhea, pregnancy or even a puncture wound – each is a dead sentence for someone living in Omilling village. This isolated village nestled between the mountains of central Eastern Equatoria state, and is several kilometer away from closest government run health clinic. It is so remote, and public transport doesn’t even go there due to lack of paved road.
The village has no sources of medical supplies and when people get sick they practice blood-letting. If this doesn’t work they die home quietly since they have no other choices.
With the funding our GlobalGiving donors Hope Ofiriha has purchased medication treat 200 children with pneumonia, and 300 patients for uncomplicated malaria.
Once again we want to thank our GlobalGiving supporters for their ongoing support, Hope Ofiriha looks forward in work with all of you in 2011 and many years to come.
Also in this Thanksgiving season; we’d like to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for your support of our small scale projects in southern Sudan.

A case of diarrhea, a pregnancy or even a puncture wound – each can be a death sentence for someone living in Omilling rural areas of Sudan.
The community has no source of medical suppliers, and they need your help. This isolated village is nestled between the mountains of central Eastern Equatoria state Sudan, is about 70km to a closet government health clinic, and several days walk from a hospital. It is also so remote that public transportation doesn’t even go there.
Raising the fund has really been a struggle but we hope our GlobalGiving donors will open up their hands. Many children are sick but there are no medicines for treating the patients.
We will be sending a field report in the next three months with latest updates. Hope Ofiriha will be collaborating with you until the goal of this project is fully achieved.
The Omilling Boma has no source of medical supplies, and patients go without treatment. We need medicines to give patients at not-for-a-profit selling price, and the money is re-invested in more medicine for the following month. In rural Omilling, this is the only way for pregnant women and malaria patients, especially children, to get a cure.
We would like thank our donors for their ongoing support toward this worthwhile project.
The Omilling rural villages still has no source of medical supplies and people here go without treatment even if they are critical ill. The community has no pave road, and the government run healthcare centers are 50 km away just going, and the same distance back.
The drug revolving fund is the only way people here can help them. We need your ongoing support so that buy medicines are purchased locally and sell to patients at not-for-profit-selling –price. The money is then re-invested in more medicines for the following month.
On June 16 2010 GlobalGiving will be matching at 50% all online donations up to 1,000 per donor per project! This campaign runs between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm EST (GMT-4).
In addition to the 50% match, GlobalGiving will be offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from most individual donors!
We are encouraging you to make a donation on June 16 to take this opportunity of the matching funds in order to help the people of Omilling Sudan to get the medicines for treatment which without your help they have no choice but to die– and finally get them out of extreme poverty and live a healthier life.
