Thanks for saving a life in a painful minute!

There is high social tension in a country which leaders attributed it to foreign interference in the internal affairs of South Sudan . Click here for more

Hundreds of workers and citizens took to the streets in Wau, South Sudan second largest city on Friday to protest against the increased of cost of living, and salary in arrears as the leaders warned the country’s economic woes were reaching a crisis point.

Protesters in Wau city, west east of Juba, demonstrated over raising prices of goods and services, and salary in arrears which they said were not matched by current wage structures.

A yawning public sector deficit, a falling local currency and high inflation have heaped pressure on South Sudan, which before independence was seen as a promising emerging economy in East Africa.

In Eastern Equatoria State (Torit) more than 100 women are dying for every 1000 babies that were born alive. The situation has improved in the past four years. Omilling has not recorded maternal deaths for a long time.

Since 1990, maternal deaths worldwide have dropped by 45%. This has been of countries adopting the eight Millennium Development Goals. However, the reduction has been marginal in South Sudan due to war and lack qualified health management team.

At the time of this reporting:
Your money and cash from other benefactors you bought and supplied Maternal survival clinic with; a box birthing mat, two boxes cotton wool, and 3 three boxes of syringes & needles.

In a next three months, we will be sending a new field update, so you get to know the impact of your contributions.

More refugees Crossed to Uganda From Juba

Newly South Sudanese Refugees Crossing to Uganda
Newly South Sudanese Refugees Crossing to Uganda

An unknown number of South Sudanese civilians have fled from the recent clashes in Juba on July 8th, 2016 to neighbouring Uganda. Read more

Hope Ofiriha will meet Refugees who travel to Uganda for asylum with microloan opportunities upon their arrival. Uganda does not strictly place newly arrived asylum seekers into refugee camps run by UN and foreign organizations. It encourages foreigners to operate a small initiative to make ends meet for their families and pay fees to educate their children. Under this moderate policy, Hope Ofiriha needs your help to provide microloans to 1000 newly arrived refugees in northern Uganda.  

We are pleased for supporting Microloan Initiative in Uganda for years.

By the time of this second reporting:
Trolltech Foundation provided $50,000 a loan money to give small loans to 200 women. Regrettably, the loaners have lost their business assets in a current fight in Juba. We will post a new report on this when peace returns.

With monthly loan capital from Deki.org.uk, we are giving small loans to 100 clients. We are happy because the project is doing well.

Your cash -  you donated through GG and direct contributions eight newly arrived refugees received micro-loans to do business so that they can provide their families with basic needs and keep children at school.

In a next quarter, we will send you a new field update report to let you know the impact of your contribution

A yawning public sector deficit, a falling local currency and high inflation have heaped pressure on South Sudan, which before independence was seen as a promising emerging economy in East Africa.

 We are pleased that you had been supporting Give Fruit & a Greener Environment project for years.

At a time of this reporting:
Your cash you donated through GlobalGivng and funds from secondary sources you supplied the project with following varieties of fruit trees and these are: 6 mangos seedlings, 2 jack fruit seedlings, and 3 avocado seedlings. These seedlings made their way to project site before the starts of torrential rain. Thank you also to pay for the transportation cost. The fruits are important future generations and for the environment.

The villagers are keen to see this project achieve its aim by participating in the activities of this project. They need your help to plant 10 acres of variety of fruit seedlings, but without outside help they cannot do much. 

In a third quarter, the project posts a new field update so that you get to know the impact of your contributions. Thanks for always standing with “Give Fruit and Greener Environment Project- South Sudan”.
