Thanks for your generous gift to Give Better Blocks for Reconstruction in S. Sudan.

Your commitments to help the needy to get out of poverty are appreciated by our Team and those who will benefit most – the children!

Current donations are totaling $ 689 and we only need $ 315 to reach the goal. The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing.

The Zambian University and Rahula Trust (UK charity), have donated two interlocking soil block making machines. These machines were loaned out to the rural building projects in the County. The needs to set up permanent structures are rising daily after the peace agreement that gave birth to world newest nation: South Sudan. These machines offered new alternatives for building. They are cheaper, takes less time to build, eco-friendly, and only water is used to cure the blocks.

With the dispensary we built in 2009/2010 the interlocking blocks reduced the costs by 60%. Little mortar was used at the ring beam level, the walls built without mortar, and the construction was fast than expected. Our trustees agreed to phase out this project by the end of the year.

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

Thank you in advance for helping Hope Ofiriha to reach more people in Magwi
