Success Story: Baby Ayaa's Birth

Giving Birth is Dangerous in South Sudan!
Giving Birth is Dangerous in South Sudan!

Thanks for your long term support to stop Moms from Dying in childbirth.

At the time of this reporting - your contributions and money from others - Hope Ofiriha provided a clinic with 1 box birthing mats, 2 boxes cotton wool, and 3 boxes syringes & needles.

Also you supported 8 Moms give birth to beautiful babies. Thanks so much for your help!

We will be sending you a new field update after three months so that you get to know the impact your contributions.

An Unlikely Success Story: Baby Ayaa's Birth:
Unfortunately, babies in South Sudan who are born in poverty will not receive a gift this because their parents are poor. This appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to a baby's face this Christmas.

With your help, Hope Ofiriha seeks to help six Mothers who are due to give birth during this holiday season. But they need your help to secure the birthing kits to give birth safely. This goodwill ensures that the families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate life.

South Sudan is one of the most dangerous places in the world for mothers. One in every 50 women who becomes pregnant will die in childbirth. Her baby is even less likely to make it.

In rural Omilling, where access to medical care is limited, the danger is even greater.

That's why baby Ayaa is such a miracle. Thanks to people like you, Ayaa's mother received critical care throughout her pregnancy and birth of her two children.

This is why we are appealing to you this Christmas to donate between $10, $50 or sign up a monthly subscription to mark a year-end to save lives.

Our hope - Is microloan!

I am doing well, thanks, W4 so much!
I am doing well, thanks, W4 so much!

Thanks for your continued support of microloan project for South Sudanese in Uganda.

You did it again this year: Your cash and money from different sources helped grant microloans in the hand of 650 economically active clients in both South Sudan and Uganda.

Thanks DEKI for providing the largest microfinance loan capital. Deki's money is repayable after the partnership comes to an end.

 By the time of this report:
With a grant of microfinance loan capital from W4, HO had disbursed microloans to 20 new clients. In total W4, has funded a total of 60 clients.

In a next quarter, we will send you a new field update report to let you know the impact of your contribution. In a report, we will tell you a positive change it created in a life of South Sudan refugee women and their children in Uganda.

Our micro-loans program offers poor active women the chance for economic independence through entrepreneurship. Obtaining the capital to start or operate a business is a major obstacle for most of South Sudanese women and their families stranded in Kampala, as a result, from Sudan's African longest civil conflict. As refugees, they have a limited option to access bank loans, particularly those without formal education. Our program provides loans to not only qualified recipients but offers educational support to help them earn huge profit through their businesses.

Women themselves start their micro-loan group with a drive to lift themselves and their families from the burden of poverty. Every month, they attend group empowerment, and education workshops focus on small business management, record keeping, and mini bookkeeping help them be successful in their efforts. When women repay their initial loan, they qualify for a high credit during the next cycle. Over the years, we have seen women start their mini saloon, restaurant, food stall in a market, and farming businesses as a result of our program.

South Sudan runs out of medicines for treatement

South Sudan is out of medicines to treat people
South Sudan is out of medicines to treat people

Thanks for your continued gift to fund Healthcare in South Sudan.

Your patients did not go without drugs instead of using voodoo. They get treated in a health post. The sick get medicines because of your contributions and money from other sources.

This year alone you save the lives of 65 children and 102 villagers. You provided six boxes Chloroquine and two boxes Azithromycin that we delivered to a clinic.

Hope Ofiriha will be sending you a new field update after a quarter to keep you inform  of what impact your gift is helping to create direct from the field.

It has been four years since South Sudan became an independent nation and less than two years since it erupted into civil war. Since then human rights abuses have been rampant.

Both sides have committed appalling and unspeakable crimes against innocent men, children, women, and elderly.

The fighting has displaced over 2 million people from their homes and left several people dead.

Before the crisis began the needs around healthcare were very tremendous. Now, the needs are unprecedented.

We have remained hopeful that a peace deal will be signed and conflict resolved, but yet there is no end in sight.

Hope Ofiriha's objective is to meeting the healthcare needs of the poor in Omilling, Magwi County.

It operates small, professionally administered village clinic that is only available health post for hundreds of local villagers.

At no charge fee, the clinic offers vaccinations, brief routine exams and other essential services.

It runs educational campaigns in the villages to raise awareness of health topics such as immunization, hygiene, and proper food cooking.
