Thanks for your long-term support to stop Moms from Dying in Childbirth.

At this reporting, your donation and money from others assisted in buying 35 insecticide nets, 8 bottle testing fluid to test malaria and another disease.

 Hope Ofiriha is appealing to GlobalGiving to maintain the partnership until this initiative is fully funded. In a next three months, will be sending you a new field update to let you know how the impac of your giftt is making positive changes in the ground.

A volunteer, who worked at AIDs initiative project, noticed that the Survival clinic was desperately short of equipment. She asked a dealer if it can sell a microscope at a discount price to Hope Ofiriha so that it can donate it to the clinic to protect lives. A microscope and PH meters get approved quickly at a reduced price.

Also, she got a private donor who gave much of the funding. We are still in need of $300 to meet our primary goal. We are appealing to 30 donors each to make a tax deductible donation of $30 this Christmas so that a project gets a unit to fight malaria. We are very grateful to our volunteer," wrote William Ochieng.

Your gift gave Omilling what they had been desiring!

Thanks for your recent charitable contribution to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan project. The trustees had appreciated your support to protect the needy facing the malaria virus. The children appreciate you - the most!

This initiative is a life-saving call deserving the world assistance, but we failed to understand why it has not attracted the supporters we had envisioned.

However, Omilling villagers and Hope Ofiriha staff remain convinced the donors will provide for our request soon. " We still need a microscope".

By the time of this reporting - your donation and money from other sources helped buy 25 insecticide nets, a box of testing liquid, and a microscope light.

Thanks to our donors! Thanks GlobalGiving for empowering Hope Ofiriha to deliver! Twenty five families have received mosquito nets to protect their children from malaria.

We are kindly requesting you to maintain your partnership with Hope Ofiriha until this project is fully funded. In the next three months, we will be sending you new field update to let you know how we are progressing from the field.

The village is equiped to fight malaria properly
The village is equiped to fight malaria properly

The government and the opposition have failed to reach a peace deal despite the pressure from IGAD, UN, and the World. There are new fierce clashes in Jonglei and Upper Nile States. Humanitarian situation is worsening. There are 1.5 million people displaced from their villages of which some are living in exile as refugees.

In Owinyikibul of Magwi County, new soldiers recruit clashed with local villagers earlier March. The drunken soldier had refused to pay for the services where he was stabbed in a bar fighting. He then organized his fellow recruits burning more than 100 houses and market stalls in retaliation. One recruit dead in the clashes. A chief has blamed the trainers for failing to keep discipline.

Thanks for your long term support to Save People from Dying from Malaria. It is yet another year, and you made it a new! Thanks for your adhering assistance. As a team, we are nearer than ever before to ending the suffering in Magwi County. That is certain, in 2014, you supported to save the lives of output-patients by testing the blood sample with a Microscope you gave. The children now get a right treatment than before.

In 2015, you bought a microscope reaching a project aim of two microscopes. Hope Ofiriha will not deliver a new microscope to a village clinic until a security situation improves.Thank you GlobalGiving! Thank you our donors!

Hope Ofiriha wishes you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year!

Thanks for your long term support to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan.

There is no political agreement reach between the government and the rebels despite IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup, South Sudan is getting worse day by day. Hope for peace has depreciated as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state.

 Hope Ofiriha continues to work with local communities in this very dangerous circumstances.

Malaria remains a threat to children's life in Omilling. It is not common to meet a child in a village that has not been attached by Malaria.

With your contributions, and together with donations from South Sudan communities in Diaspora the project had purchased forty insecticides mosquito nets and distributed to worst affected families. These nets will protect children against mosquito bites with a net covering three children.

The project aims to secure one microscope. When a child is sick in the village from an unknown disease is presumed to be malaria. Even if when the child might be suffering from a stomach egg. This had caused much suffering than helping because of treating them with wrong medicine for wrong disease. Many children had become drug-resistance. For this reason, a microscope is a solution for testing blood sample to stop misdiagnosis from spreading in Omilling village.

This project has not reached its goal, and we kindly ask you to stand with us to the very end. In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted to let you know new development.

Fighting Malaria for two weeks!
Fighting Malaria for two weeks!

Thanks for your long term support to Save People from Dying from Malaria in South Sudan.

Ochieng nearly died after catching one of the most severe forms of malaria during a trip to visit Mairo primary school building project.

He did not take antimalarial medication, believing the course he had taken for a previous trip to Uganda still protected him. However, he fell ill soon after returning to Uganda after spending two weeks in South Sudan and spent two weeks fighting in the hospital. A pastor was even called to give Ochieng his last rites after doctors feared he would not survive.

" I was told I could have died, says Ochieng. " Compared to what I went through, the potential mild discomfort of taking antimalarial pills is nothing."

Ochieng hopes his story will raise awareness of about the risks of Malaria to volunteers visiting Omilling, to take with them antimalarial tablets, and help the village get microscope donated for malaria testing.

Ten-insecticide mosquito nets had been purchased and distributed to children who are severely sick from malaria. Sleeping under these nets will protect them against mosquito.

This project needs only $288 to reach its budget goal. In the next quarter, a new field update will be posted, so you get to know what has happened from the field.
