Without Microscope: more will continue to suffer!

Amom: with a child suffering from malaria!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Save People from Dying from Malaria.

Your commitment to help the needy to get out of poverty is appreciated by our trustees and those who will benefit most – the children!

This project is growing at the slow phase yet it is a worthwhile cause. The project has received $470, but we still need $530 to reach the goal.

No microscope is available at the village clinic. Teenage girls, women, and especially children under 5 are often at the clinic suffering from different diseases and, and always they are being treated for malaria although they may be having stomach problems. This misjudgment is due to lack of testing facilities which created more suffering to patients who need help. Recently, some patients with swollen stomachs and faces were treated for HIV-AIDs when this is not case. When a woman vomits in Omilling she is condemn HIV victim without medical testing. Having no testing facility is serious issue.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They are waiting for you to give them a microscope for testing malaria.

Until this project is fully funded we will be sending you quarterly field reports. You will get to know what your contribution has helped impact and what we have achieved.

Childbirth Delivery Bed; ordered

The Clinic has unskilled birth attendant who is pioneering behavior change locally as more mothers opted for skilled delivery.

In the span of just two years, 105 women gave birth to 107 babies at Onura Maternal Maternity Survival Clinic rather than give birth at home, and 8 mothers with serious pregnancy related complications referred to Juba State Hospital.

The project supplied the survival clinic with: 10 small boxes of cotton wool, 5 boxes of syringes/needles, 4 boxes of sterile gowns/gloves, and 15 boxes maternity pads, 3 sets of umbilical cord clam, 9 boxes forceps/sutures, 4 sets of birthing mats/scissors, and 1 set of delivery instruments.

The project also purchased a childbirth delivery bed, which reinforced the capacity building of the clinic. This order is on way to Onura.

At the request of women, Anne, (a village midwife), is awarded a two year course leading to “Certificate in Midwifery”, at Mayanja memorial Hospital Foundation, Uganda. After completion, she will return to help mothers deliver safely in Onura. She is waiting for her admission. We still don’t know if or not she will be accepted. By the time of reporting we haven’t heard from the college.

We need 250 Bags Cement

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Educate Children and Fight Poverty in South Sudan.

Your commitment to help the needy to get liberated from extreme poverty is really appreciated by our trustees, and those who benefit most- the Children!

Your donation will buy 25 bags of cements, and 10 iron sheets for roofing. Currently, HOPE Ofiriha only buys cement to produce interlocking soil blocks.

A project targets to make 60 000 pieces interlocking blocks. A bag of cement mixes with 8 wheelbarrow of sub-soil produces 105 pieces.

We need 572 bags of cement for the entire construction; the activities are on hold while fundraising is running. The production of blocks is not started because we need 250 bags of cement to begin. The children are really eager to see this progress progressing.

While this project is under implementation, we will be sending you our quarterly reports about our worker. You will get to know what your donation has helped impact, and what we have achieved.

Once again, thank you for all you do for Hope Ofiriha.
