We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year 2013!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Give Blocks for Reconstruction: 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!

With the two interlocking soil block machines donated two years ago, they are really helping the local communities. There is huge demand of their services so Hope Ofiriha finds it difficult to meet the growing needs. The project has received $719, but we still need $ 281 to reach the budget goal. This is a one-time cost; money donated toward this cause is in the restricted fund - bank account. Once a new unit is secured it will help increase our capacity to help many communities to stop their hunger for interlocking soil blocks.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They need your help to secure one soil block machine.

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!
