An - input -malaria - patient under treatment
The quality of the health of the village served has not improved since the signing of peace.
Microscopes are badly needed for Malaria testing.
The available of basic health care in southern Sudan has improved over the past five years; however there is still a critical shortage of clinics in rural areas. Hope Ofiriha has distributed medical supplies in small boxes over the years to make a big impact on improving the health of the local population in Omilling rural areas.
The people in these rural areas are very poor and the past instability affected the village badly. The 25 years of war reduced the education, and health infrastructures to a very 0 level. The Omilling rural community has a population of approximately 12000 of which nearly half are under 15 years old. People are served by one health post, in the rural village called Onura but there is still shortage of many medical equipments.
At the present time treatments are given out to patients who show symptoms of malaria even if they may be suffering from some other diseases. The microscopes are critically needed to enable patients to be treated with the right medicines, and spare life for the rural poor.
This project is at the fundraising stage, and the $60 donated have been used in purchasing 6 mosquito nets and given 6 families in Onura village.
This year thing has not been easy for us and our donors due to current recessions. But people who suffer most are those who are already poor. We are looking for 100 donors – Hope Ofiriha asks each to commit only $10 on monthly basis. This way we will be able to raise the required fund in few months.
We will post a new progress report after three months so that you know the progress – this project is making. Thanks for partnering with Hope Ofiriha, and to help the people of southern Sudan.
Thanks for ongoing support!
