We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year 2013!

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Reduce Hunger and Women’s workloads in South Sudan project. Your committed to help the needy to get out of poverty is really appreciated by our trustees and those will benefit most – the girl children!

Thank you in advance for helping South Sudanese women – with your contribution to give their community a Maize grinding mill. When the mill arrives women will get more time to relax, stay with children, and girl-child have time to go to school and do home-work daily. Their health improves, and they will not squat to crash the dried maize for posho. We are ordering for the Mill in January 2013. The fund donated for this cause is in the restricted fund bank account. This is a one-time cost; we will have to pay all at once to secure the good on the arrival.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They need your help to help to get a Maize mill.

While our communities had just started to adjust from the shocks and devastation of prolonged civil war, they were yet met by airstrikes and ground assaults launched against South Sudan in the bordering states by Sudan armed forces and militant allies. This brought more unnecessary displacement, vulnerability, anguish and human suffering.

Life in the South Sudan – Sudan bordering states became unbearable as cost of living steadily skyrocketed. While two nations have signed a deal to promote peaceful coexistence, the impact of recent conflict include Abyei has caused humanitarian needs to the affected people.

We therefore, request our partners to continue their support to Hope Ofiriha and more importantly to the needy and vulnerable groups in the communities. We look forward to working with all of you in 2013.

May I take this opportunity to wish our donors and partners a Merry Christmas and very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year 2013!
