Without Microscope: more will continue to suffer!

Amom: with a child suffering from malaria!
Amom: with a child suffering from malaria!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Save People from Dying from Malaria.

Your commitment to help the needy to get out of poverty is appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most – the children!

This project is growing at the slow phase yet it is a worthwhile cause. The project has received $470, but we still need $530 to reach the goal.

No microscope is available at the village clinic. Teenage girls, women, and especially children under 5 are often at the clinic suffering from different diseases and, and always they are being treated for malaria although they may be having stomach problems. This misjudgment is due to lack of testing facilities which created more suffering to patients who need help. Recently, some patients with swollen stomachs and faces were treated for HIV-AIDs when this is not case. When a woman vomits in Omilling she is condemn HIV victim without medical testing. Having no testing facility is serious issue.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They are waiting for you to give them a microscope for testing malaria.

Until this project is fully funded we will be sending you quarterly field reports. You will get to know what your contribution has helped impact and what we have achieved.

No Microscope - Malaria attaches.

Empower him to stop Malaria from killing

 Thanks for your recent generous gift to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan.

Your commitment to help the needy to get out of poverty is appreciated by our directors and those who will benefit most – the children!

A boy lay sick in his been, the 11 year-old knew he would not make it the next day. He had an excruciating headache, a fever, and had become weak from vomiting.

Above his bed, damp clothes dangled from a makeshift clothesline. It was the rainy season in his rural village in Omilling. As water dripped through the holes of the dilapidated roof, small puddles of stagnant water began to appear on the rugged mud floor – a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

His mother instinctively knew what was wrong: A boy was sick with Malaria again. And again his elder sister was still recovering from a recent bout of the mosquito-borne disease.

Although Malaria is a preventable and curable disease, in Omilling families lack proper mosquito nets and access to medications. Almost half of the world’s population is at risk of malaria, reports the WHO. In Africa, a child dies every minute from the disease.

Your donation is $370 and we are not far from reaching the budget goal. The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They are waiting for you to give them a microscope for testing malaria.

Until this project is fully funded we will be sending you quarterly field reports. You will get to know what your contribution has helped impact and what we have achieved.

Thank you in advance for helping Hope Ofiriha.

GIVE MICROSCOPE TO FIGHT MALARIA INFECTION

$295 donated is in the bank – but HO still needs $705 to reach our goal!

When a child living with malaria in Omilling gets a fever, the health workers cannot know the cause to make absolutely sure they give the right treatment.

To confirm a diagnosis of malaria infection the health worker need a microscope to detect parasites in a blood sample. This equipment is not available in the health post. As a result many children have been given malaria medication when in fact they are suffering from other diseases.

We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help the local people to get out from the cycle of malaria infections. Children are paying a higher price!

Tests for Malaria are not Work in Omilling

Omilling health post need microscope badly!

 $145 – you donated is in bank account – but we still need $1355 to reach our goal!

When a person living in a malaria area gets a fever, health workers need to know the cause to make absolutely sure they give the right treatment.

For many years in Omilling primary health workers have often assumed a fever is caused by malaria, and give antimalarial drugs. This approach means sometimes people receive the wrong treatment for their illness. It also wastes resources and, over time, can promote resistance to available drugs.

These days, confirming a diagnosis of malaria infection is done by detecting parasites in a blood sample using a microscope. This requires a trained staff – health post at Omilling has one, but reagents and equipments all which are not there – including a microscopes.

We still need your help to put the finishing touches on this project to help local people to get out from the cycle of malaria infections. Children are paying a higher price!
