Education is Power

I am waiting for fees to go to school Again!
I am waiting for fees to go to school Again!

Thanks for your continued support to sponsor children in Uganda.

Hope Ofiriha had supported refugee children from Magwi County South Sudan, who are living in Kampala since Sudanese longest conflict in Africa that ended in 2005.

When the recent conflict broke out in 2013 in Juba, we started to sponsor Dinka, and Nuer children who escaped to Uganda due to instability in Jonglei and Upper Nile states. These children approached Hope Ofiriha to help.

Presently, we are not able to help because the current global slowdown made our corporate donors to stop temporarily funding until the world crisis improves.

Also, the sponsoring families from oversea had cancelled their contract citing inflation had an adverse impact on their incomes. They will continue to assist when the depression improves. The project does not has the fund to send several children to school.

Our strategy is to help each child per family and from a different part of a country. We do this to expand the educational development across the country and societies.

With pressures, we are paying fees to keep two children at school due to shortages of sufficient cash flow.

When you get this report, please know that your generosity makes a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve.

After three months a new field update be posted, so you get to know what impact your contribution.

Giving birth: most dangerous for an African mother

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

The birth of a baby, which should be the joyous moment, too often produces anguish for the family in Omilling. Pregnancy and childbirth complexities are the principal cause of death for women in Magwi County. Besides mothers are key to the prosperity of their communities. Without them, the family cannot hope to thrive.

In South Sudan, one in 10 women dies each day in childbirth according to report issued by a ministry of health. In UK, is one in 8,000 according to UN statistic

High blood pressure and breech births are treatable in the USA, South Sudanese women are likely to die from them due to lack of access to quality healthcare and trained midwife. With no transport, this means their only option is to walk, often in the middle of labor, to get help.

Your continued recurring contributions and cash from other donors, we supplied the clinic with - two boxes birthing mats, three boxes cotton wool, one box syringes & needles. Mothers had given birth to six beautiful babies with your support. 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.

Your gift gave Omilling what they had been desiring!

Thanks for your recent charitable contribution to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan project. The trustees had appreciated your support to protect the needy facing the malaria virus. The children appreciate you - the most!

This initiative is a life-saving call deserving the world assistance, but we failed to understand why it has not attracted the supporters we had envisioned.

However, Omilling villagers and Hope Ofiriha staff remain convinced the donors will provide for our request soon. " We still need a microscope".

By the time of this reporting - your donation and money from other sources helped buy 25 insecticide nets, a box of testing liquid, and a microscope light.

Thanks to our donors! Thanks GlobalGiving for empowering Hope Ofiriha to deliver! Twenty five families have received mosquito nets to protect their children from malaria.

We are kindly requesting you to maintain your partnership with Hope Ofiriha until this project is fully funded. In the next three months, we will be sending you new field update to let you know how we are progressing from the field.
