The victims of south Sudan madness
Thank you for providing loan capital in the hands of women to feed their families.
It was the bodyguards for rebel leader and presidential guards who fought each other in earlier July sparking days of violence which killed many hundreds of soldiers and civilians. The two forces had battled each other, almost five years to the day South Sudan declared independence from Sudan. Following the orders from the leadership on both sides, the clashes ceased temporarily in late in July. The rebels then moved their based outside Juba in an attempt to save peace which both parties signed.
In August fighting was in the outskirt of Juba in which the oppositions accused the government of attacking their positions. The rebels regrouped and fled to Congo with Riek Machar, their leader. Over the last few months, the citizens have expressed dissent against the government, as a result of this, the rebellion is growing rapidly in Equatoria Region, which kept itself neutral for much of two years’ civil conflict in Upper Nile State. Different tribes are targeting ethnic Dinka. The humanitarian needs are going to be very great after this, Director General for RRC, told reporters. They are going to need food, shelter, water, he said, adding that the need for shelter and clean water was pressing for those living in a Displaced facility within Juba town.
At a time of this reporting:
HO is regretful to inform you that due to the fighting in Juba, the 400 clients you funded their loans capital had their merchandise confiscated at gunpoint at a total value of USD 120,000. HO also lost much cash due to hyperinflation that had pressed South Sudanese Pound against USD and Ugandan Shillings. The loaners are not able to service their loans. These women were hawking between Juba-Kampala to make ends meet for their families. Unknown shooters killed ten entrepreneurs when resisting looting and vandalism, between Nimule-Juba highway. Twenty women raped, and six are in a critical situation as a result of abused. Two of HO officials were also arrested illegally and beaten. Fortunately, the Authority released the two staff without explanation, after 60 days in detention.
With loan capital from Deki, our microfinance lead partner (UK), HO is funding 150 clients monthly. HO is only granting loans to refugees living in Uganda from South Sudan until further notice.
With current and, previous cash donations through GlobalGiving HO is recycling your money into new investment capital and gave credit to four refugee families to do income generating activity to make ends meet for their families and educate their children.
In the next quarter, we will send you a new field update report to let you know the impact of your contribution.
