Thanks for recent generous gift to Stop Moms from Dying in childbirth project.

Only days ago an alleged coup in South Sudan has left hundreds dead, and many in the region concerned for what the coming days may bring for the world’s youngest country.

Due to Omilling's bad, and muddy road caused by heavy rainfall it has been nearly impossible for two months to deliver the critical needed basic materials for giving birth at Onura Survival Clinic. Delivery has been resumed until next rainfall season.

First the supplies bought two months ago ought to be driven to Onura Survival clinic. These are: 4 birthing mats, 6 boxes cotton wool, 12 pieces syringes & needles. Anna Abwoo, village mid-wife said today six moms are due to give birth this December. She's making a new order to get the items to clinic awaiting the arrival of new babies.

Here are a success stories from a beneficiary:

Jennifer would like to thank everyone for the generous support she received when she was due to give birth to a son, who's two years and three months old. Without your help probably I could have not been there anymore, said Jennifer. Your donations helped give me basic materials for birth giving. I gave birth safely for the first time in my life. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We will be sending a new field update after three months, so that you get to know what the impact your contribution is making in the lives of new babies and their Moms.
