August field progress report

We are grateful to our Globalgiving donors for their ongoing support to ONURA Women Beekeeping Project Sudan.

Our Bee-keeping staff are facing hard time to run the project, and to help more women involve through distribution of Beehives due to donation short coming.

We also understand it is hard time for our donors due to current economic recession which has affected our charity donations. For the past months the bee-keeping donations has fallen by 95%. But the women of ONURA local community of southern are optimistic, motivated and are working hard to bring changes into their rural communities.

The staff of Hope Ofiriha understands that if the world is hit by current recession, and their donors are no different. But people who suffer most are the poorest women of ONURA rural communities southern Sudan. They have no choice but they will be waiting for your “help”.

A quote from a beneficiary: Bee-keeping provide us with ongoing income for years. This will give hope to women, children, and our village. All we need are beehives - the forest will provide bees, and honey we sell in the local market and buy basic goods.

Thanks for reading this report and you will be hearing from us again in the next three months with latest update from the field.

Thanks for generous contribution!
