We wish you a happy new year 2013!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Stop South Sudanese Moms from Dying in Childbirth 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!

South Sudan has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world: a South-Sudanese woman has a 1 in 7 chance of dying owing to pregnancy or childbirth-related complications. Extreme poverty and a severely inadequate health care system threaten the lives of millions of South Sudanese people, especially women and children.

In December 2012 the project supplied 2 boxes cotton wool, 5 pieces sterile gowns, and 14 pieces maternity pads. Omilling is expecting two Moms to give birth in February and first week of mach 2013. 

The Moms are eager to see this project progressing. They need your help to stock the Survival Maternal Maternity Unit.

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 very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year 2013!
