After Christmas - We're in business again!

By William Logai Ochieng | Executive Director

Your impact put in good use to overcome poverty!
Your impact put in good use to overcome poverty!

Because of South Sudan’s war the aid workers who already were in the ground helping had left, and the charity made a difficult choice not to recruit new volunteers. We also suspended to implement the Omilling’s project activities because of the anarchy. This instability affected our ability to gather facts from the ground to post you the quarterly field update report.

We’re pleased to report that your money and donations different sources had been set aside until this November. However, there is good news to share with you. The government and rebel in South Sudan have signed a peace deal formally ending a five-year war that has destroyed the economy and killed tens of thousands of civilians. Because of it we’re resuming our operation in South Sudan immediately. Your gift will be used for this cause.

At the time of this reporting:
This project’s activity is in Uganda. However the war in South Sudan had affected our ability to keep it running for two reasons:

a) in Uganda office we had a huge staff turnover and lack of management capacity. To address this internal crisis we needed time.

b) When we started this scheme our target group are South Sudanese refugees women who’re stranded in an outskirt of Kampala city and been in Uganda over ten years. 

But a lot of women fled to Kampala from Juba from between 2013 to 2018. The new-comers had applied for the microloans as well. Nevertheless, we’re making a decision on whether or not to include them in our program before this Christmas. This project re-starts in January 2019.

After this report we will be posting you a second field update report to let you know during unreported period what took place and the current status of this need.
