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

Thanks for your recent generous gift to Prevent HIV-AID through Awareness 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 children!

This Awareness campaign has proved useful to the rural communities. Before this project, it was illegal to talk to people living with HIV in Omilling, ask suspects to take voluntary HIV testing, and victims to declare themselves voluntarily. The communities also discriminated openly against the sufferers. But with your support the trend has changed positively in the past two years. Alone in December 2012 with your contributions four HIV/AID workshops was held, and 75 liter petrol was purchased to power the land Rover for HIV field outreach.

The beneficiaries are eager to see this project progressing. They need your help to keep the campaign running to change the negative attitudes against HIV/AID and the victims.

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!
