While our staff faced hard time in the ground our campaign toward this project is promising. Women in ONURA rural communities of southern Sudan still have no access to a Posho mill. They have to pound the corn into flour by hand. Corn flour is staple diet serve as Ugali. The Ugali would replace potatoes, rice or bread in northern America’s diet. Each day, women, and young girls spend several hours pounding the dried maize using their hand by squatting on their knees. The work is a hard one but women have no choice.

Quote from a small girl: I cannot say no to pound dried maize flour to cook Ugali when I am asked by my father. “I have no voice” and even if I am tired I have to because maize pounding and cooking is regarded women’s task. Our only help; is to have a Posho Mills in Onura local community.

Women in ONURA sub village really need the Posho mills soon. When this is delivered it will serve three things; women’s healthy will improve, women have time for themselves and their children. We are very grateful for your help and we look forward in partnering with you until the project has reached the goal. You will be hearing from us again in the next three months with latest project report.

Thanks for your ongoing supports!
