Childbirth is a dead sentence in South Sudan

Thanks for helping women in South Sudan
Thanks for helping women in South Sudan

Thanks for your long-term support to Stop Moms from Dying in Childbirth.

At a time of this reporting, your bucks and contributions from other sources, allowed Hope Ofiriha to provide a survival clinic with three birthing mats, four boxes cotton wool, and six boxes of syringes & needles.

The birth of a baby, which should be a joyful moment, too often brings agony for families in Omilling. Pregnancy and childbirth completions are the leading cause of death and injury for mothers in Magwi County. Yet, women are critical to the health and wealth of their villages. Without them, the family cannot hope to thrive. But with your help, we reduced the number of mothers dying while delivering in rural villages.

In South Sudan, a staggering one in 50 women dies in pregnancy or childbirth. In the Uk, it is just one in 8,000. While conditions such as high blood pressure, breech births are easily treated in the Uk, South Sudanese women are likely to die from them because they lack access to high-quality health care or a trained midwife. A skilled health worker attends only 21% of births in a World newest state.

Success stories:
My complicated pregnancy could have killed my baby or me and today someone would have been narrating my story. " I could have been a maternal death statistic which I stayed at home and sought the services of an untrained midwife. " mine was an experience I want other women to learn from.

" I do want any other woman to die while giving birth because Hope Ofiriha has put in place interventions that save lives.

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

No One should Relax - When Facing HIV/AIDS.

Local HIV/AIDS workshop South Sudan
Local HIV/AIDS workshop South Sudan

Thanks for your continued support to prevent the spread of HIV-AIDS through Awareness campaign in Omilling South Sudan.

By the time of this reporting:
You and other people sponsored ten local Awareness workshops. You supplied the gathering with 120 exercise books and 100 pencils. Hope Ofiriha gave to 80 participants to write notes during the course. We are doing this aggressively, and loudly to reach more people in other villages.

The HIV/AID is an epidemic that is not well comprehended in rural South Sudan. To get it through, our trainers are talking to villagers, in particular, boys and girls who are the target. Our objective is to make sure they understand how to avoid be affected by a virus, and how to have safe sex, and preventing unwanted pregnancy among girls.

South Sudan is relaxing on a time grenade when it comes to HIV/AIDS because there is no agenda to resist it. Albeit Hope Ofiriha is improving in raising awareness; the country is busy with a war.  

In a next three months, a new field update will be posted, so you get to know the impact your donation.

Your cash helped to purchase 200 ecycalptus seedlings, 200 Indian Mango seedlings, 30 Avocado seedlings, 15 jackfruit seedlings, and 50 passion fruits. The project is advancing well, and we are hopeful the aim of this activity is attainable.

The project will be sending you a new field update after three months, to let you the progress your gift.

Our program simultaneously combats poverty and restore the environment. This year, in response to the obstacles, faced by farmers in Omilling, we defined our triple bottom line, people, profit and a planet (3Ps).

To meet the objectives of our 3Ps, we are focusing on fruit seedlings planting strategy, which generates sustainable economic, social and environmental benefits for a future.

A Farmer, who is halfway through establishing her new fruit seedlings nursery, began to see benefits within the first year.
We are asking you to donate $25 to give each family a fruit tree seedling as a Christmas gift to provide food for future generation.
