South Sudan on the Brink of Famine as Fighting Rages On. Aid agencies predict that South Sudan could be headed for the worst famine since the 1984 Ethiopian famine. The United Nations has warned that a famine looms if there is no end to the fighting that erupted in mid-December between the government and rebels. More than a third of the nation's roughly 11 million people could be on the brink of starvation by the end of the year, UN officials claim.
Additional aid is needed to combat this alarming crisis.It has started to rain very heavily, and the unpaved road to Omilling is completely bad to drive. We are committed to serving mothers and young girls, and through a land Rover Defender we are delivering the supplies to ONURA SURVIVAL CLINIC. In this last quarter, we delivered these items. four-birth mats, ten-box cotton wool, ten syringe, two-set umbilical cord clam, and 8-maternity pads.
Through your help more lives have been safe, and last month two young girls were under a critical condition when they were giving birth. They cannot give birth normally because their body too weak to pushed out babies. We took them to the main hospital where they get help.
After a quarter, a new update field report will be sent, so you get to know the impact your contribution create in the lives of new babies and their moms.
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.
Through Land Rover Defender we are able to deliver the supplies to the clinic, despite the bad road caused by heavy rainfall. The following items are delivered to ONURA Survival Clinic - 6 birth mats, 8 boxes cotton wool, 4 pieces syringe & needle, 5 sets of umbilical cord clam, 6 maternity pads , and 2 set delivery instruments.
South Sudanese women are 155 times likely to die in childbirth and pregnancy than Westerners, a ministry of Health in Juba report says.
Overall, an Omilling woman have a higher chance of dying in childbirth and pregnancy, but through your contribution many deaths have been avoided. Six mothers gave birth safely to six beautiful babies last year.
The death rates could have been reduced by 99% if mothers had access to emergency obstetric care. Many women still deliver their children alone or with untrained attends, and we are raising awareness to give birth in the clinic, says mid-wife Abwoo.
After a quarter a new update field report will be sent, so you get to know the impact your contribution create in the lives of new babies and their moms.
Only days ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming days may bring for the world’s youngest country.
Due to Omilling's bad, and muddy road caused by heavy rainfall it has been nearly impossible for two months to deliver the critical needed basic materials for giving birth at Onura Survival Clinic. Delivery has been resumed until next rainfall season.
First the supplies bought two months ago ought to be driven to Onura Survival clinic. These are: 4 birthing mats, 6 boxes cotton wool, 12 pieces syringes & needles. Anna Abwoo, village mid-wife said today six moms are due to give birth this December. She's making a new order to get the items to clinic awaiting the arrival of new babies.
Here are a success stories from a beneficiary:
Jennifer would like to thank everyone for the generous support she received when she was due to give birth to a son, who's two years and three months old. Without your help probably I could have not been there anymore, said Jennifer. Your donations helped give me basic materials for birth giving. I gave birth safely for the first time in my life. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We will be sending a new field update after three months, so that you get to know what the impact your contribution is making in the lives of new babies and their Moms.

Culturally, South Sudanese value large families!Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop South Sudanese Moms from Dying in Childbirth project. Your commitment to help the needy get out of poverty is really appreciated by our board of trustees, and those who will benefit most - the babies!
Culturally, South Sudanese value large families and women in South Sudan on average give birth five times - or more in their lifetime. This makes obstetrics a very important part of Omilling local healthcare system, and access to quality delivery facilities and skilled birth attendants a critical element in addressing women's health at a national level.
Traditionally in Omilling, women give birth at home with the assistance of their mother, mother-in-law, or a traditional birth attendant (TBA). Most have no medical training but rather learned their "skills" on the job, and it is common for women to experience complications during birth which would lead to the death of the mother, the baby, or both.
To address these issues, Omilling Traditional Authority passed a by-law in 2012 requiring women to give birth at a local healthcare facility with a Skilled Birth Assistant (SBA).
From January - to - March 2013, the project supplied Onura Survival Maternal Maternity Clinic with these items: five (5) sets birthing mats, one (1) set umbilical cord calm, one (1) set delivery kit, twenty (20) pieces syringes & needles, and two (2) big boxes cotton wool.
These Moms are eager to see this project progressing, and need your help to stock more supplies.
Since this project is still under implementation, we will be sending you the quarterly report. You will get to know what your donation has helped impact, and what we have achieved.
