Thanks for your recent generous gift to Combat Malnutrition with Bee-keeping in South Sudan project.
Few months ago the wild monkeys destroyed the bee hives, which pushed the project to zero level. The loss was too much for the villagers who benefited from the activity. However, they have accepted the reality and looked forward to starting the project from the beginning. With your contributed a carpenter had made 25 new beehives to deploy in the foot of Onura hill to attract bees to make honey. The project wanted to do more: rebuild destroyed hives but it lacks the resource to pay for reconstruction activity.
Hope Ofiriha is looking for a truck to deliver these hives to the project site, but since social unrest broke in Juba last December 2013, it had been difficult to hire a truck to drive to Omilling due to insecurity concern. We are hoping to get a lorry very soon. Beekeeping - necessary to boost the rural economy:While beekeeping is a small industry, it is an important one that plays a significant role within the agricultural sector in rural south Sudan. Beekeeping is essential, not just for honey and other hive products such as beeswax, but also for the pollination. It is a potential income generation enterprise, and honey is regarded medicine in a rural south Sudan. The importance of honey and bee is endless. In the next quarter, a new field update report will be posted so that you get to know what impact your contribution has helped create in Omilling South Sudan.
