We wish you a happy new year 2013!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Bring Hope to a Destitute Family in 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!

Alai, her 4 - children and a mother has arrived to African newest nation, said by Haya.  A member of Hope Ofiriha met with Mrs. Haya in Juba to discuss new plans to help Alai stand with her own foot in a near future. Mrs. Haya, suggested that; Alai should be trained to operate a roadside tiny restaurant for recurring income generation. Now, Alai is receiving a new training under the guidance of Mrs. Haya, in Juba, and she will graduate after two months course. HO released $200 to pay for the course fees, foods, and transport – to and from school five days a week. Mrs. Haya has agreed to give them an accommodation until the training period is over.

HO will grant Alia a micro-loan in form of a start - up capital so she sets up a roadside restaurant for income generation to provide her family with basic needs, and pay her children’s education. Alai has suffered for years, but your help she is very optimistic about the future over since from Omdruman.

She is very eager to see this project progressing. She needs your help to your help so she can set up a tiny business in South Sudan capital - Juba.

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!
