Malaria: kills children in Africa

We valued your support to stop Malaria killing in South Sudan.

At this first reporting in 2017:
This project had not attracted many donations yet it is a worthy project to save a life of venerable children who are facing malaria intimidation steadily.

South Sudan: each day at least 200 undocumented infants dies (under 5 years) due to poor diagnostic of a disease, wrong medication, and lack of microscope to test malaria virus. The rate has increased drastically in rural clinics because of instability in the region.

With your money and funds from other patrons, we purchased ten mosquito nets and distributed to families in need so their children sleep under the nets.We will be posting a new field up in the second quarter, so you get to know the positive contribution your gift is creating in the life of people from the ground.

Growing instability triggers new displacement
Fighting between armed groups has driven thousands of people from their villages in Eastern, Central, and Western Equatoria states since the start of January. Several thousand had taken refuge in Uganda.

The Relief Agencies are increasingly concerned at recent growing uncertainty around South Sudan and its serious impact on the civilian population.

UNHCR alerted that localized fighting between rebel armed groups and government soldiers and an apparent breakdown in law and order are being reported in and near Yambio, some 300 kilometers west of Juba.

Sporadic gunfire is commonplace, and there has also been an increase in crime involving car-jackings, attacks on government property, looting of civilian homes and sexual assaults,"

We appreciate that you had been supporting this cause for years.
At this third quarter of reporting:
You and two generous individuals purchased eight mosquito nets which a project was to distribute to families whose children are severely suffering from malaria. Due to high insecurity concern in rural South, Sudan we are not able to deliver these items to them. We will do so when security situation has become better.

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 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. Other 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.
War-torn South Sudan is suffering a rise in hate speech and incitement to violence against certain ethnic groups which could result in mass atrocities if the government does not act, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said Tuesday.
Animosity between South Sudan’s Dinka ethnic group and the people of its southwestern Equatoria region surged earlier this month when buses on roads south of the capital Juba were attacked as they passed through Equatoria region.

There is high social tension in a country which leaders attributed it to foreign interference in the internal affairs of the country – world newest nation. Click here for more

Hundreds of workers and citizens took to the streets in Wau, South Sudan second largest city on Friday to protest against the increased of cost of living, and salary in arrears as the leaders warned the country’s economic woes were reaching a crisis point.

Protesters in Wau city, west east of Juba, demonstrated over raising prices of goods and services, and salary in arrears which they said were not matched by current wage structures.

A yawning public sector deficit, a falling local currency and high inflation have heaped pressure on South Sudan, which before independence was seen as a promising emerging economy in East Africa.

We are grateful for your continued assistance to Save People from Dying from Malaria project.

At this second quarter reporting:
You and others gave three mosquito nets to three families whose children were under constant attack from Malaria, a public enemy in Africa. After receiving the net cover, the children were not falling often from the disease.

In South Sudan villagers acknowledge your interest to protect them from the disease especially children who have benefited to the maximum!

Malaria is the greatest killer in Africa. Join us to fight the virus. Four out of six children under five die from sickness weekly in South Sudan. The cause of death is that most rural health posts have no facility to test the diseases. In EU no child can die from a similar illness.

The community needs a microscope to test malaria. Your contribution will save a life for many generations to come with one-time donation. 

Even though this is “a just cause” this initiative has not attracted a pool of donors according to an anticipation of the charity. We are confident you with the needy!

We will be posting a new field up in the third quarter, so you get to know the positive contribution your gift is creating from the ground

Thanks for your support to a project Save People Dying from Malaria in S. Sudan.

You provided five mosquito nets to five families who their children who are often falling ill due to mosquito bites. The kits are not often sick because they sleep under a net.

The villagers acknowledge your concern to protect them from malaria glue and in particular - children who will benefit the most!

Malaria is a great killer of in Africa and, in particular, South Sudan with poor health care facility. Together let us fight malaria. 4 out of 6 kits die from malaria weekly in South Sudan. The cause of death is that most rural health posts have no equipment to test diseases. In a developed nations no child can die from a similar illness.

The cause has not pulled donors as we had anticipated, even it is a life-saving initiative. However, Hope Ofiriha remains confident that GlobalGiving donors will provide a microscope to the needy soon.

We will be posting you a new field up in the second quarter, so you get to know the positive contribution your gift is creating from a ground.

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.
