As Covid-19 continues to negatively affect communities around the world, the most vulnerable people are badly hit by the impact of lockdown. Yei is not an exception. People here are really suffering and in need of humanitarian support. Faith South Sudan carried out phase two of the Ravens Project last week. 20 most vulnerable households received food items. These were selected based on their condition.
Over one hundred Church members Vulnerable households received food items at our Yei office today. The Ravens Project is a project aimed to help people cope with the effects of Covid-19 pandemic. Each household received soap for hand washing one of the most important preventive measures against Corona virus.
We call it THE RAVENS PROJECT (1 Kings 17:4-6). We would like to distribute food items to 100 Vulnerable households who are already starving because of the lockdown here in Yei South Sudan due to Covid-19. We would like to distribute food items to these people this month of May. People in Yei have suffered as a result of the war and lost most of their livelihood. Because of the lockdown, most of the people have no business to feed their families.
Partner with us to feed a vulnerable family. Your one-time donation of $10 can help us feed a vulnerable family for two days.
Faith Uganda is training 100 youth leaders from Rhino camp settlement this year. Phase 1 of the Training took place from 27th to 30th January 2020. Many of these young people gave their lives to Jesus during the training.
We thank God so much for what He has allowed us do in the past 11 months. It was made possible by the generous support of our donors and prayer partners.
LIVELIHOOD TRAINING FOR WOMEN AND YOUNG GIRLS
We were able to successfully train and equipped 183 women and young ladies with life skills in tailoring, Embroidery, Driving and Liquid Soap Making. 53 of these women were trained in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement in Northern Uganda. These women are now making use of their new skills to earn income to support their families.
DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING FOR YOUTH LEADERS
We thank God for the successful Discipleship Training we did for 120 Youth Leaders from Churches in Bidibidi and Imvepi Refugee Camps. Many of these youth leaders gave their lives to Christ during the training. Many of them are now assuming leadership roles in their respective Churches.
MARRIED COUPLES CONFERENCE
We thank God for the successful conference we did for over 50 couples in Yei Town, South Sudan. This training was done three times since 2017 to the same couples. We were able to see relationships restored, family re-uniting and people encouraged and equipped to go to their respective Churches as marriage counsellors.
DRIVING & COMPUTER COURSES IN JUBA
We thank God for the only activity now taking place in Juba, South Sudan. 30 qualified drivers have been trained and tested and have acquired their driving licenses in Juba. New students are picking admission forms to start their driving lessons soon.
We appreciate your prayers for our work in South Sudan and Uganda. Please pray for the following:
Pray for Our Executive Director Mbaraza Emmanuel as he looks after all the activities of the ministry. Pray that God gives him wisdom in the work entrusted to him.
Pray for new donors to support our livelihood development skills program (Women and Youth Empowerment Program) that has no funding at the moment.
Pray for our Leaders training seminar and the Yei End of Year Concert in December. Pray that we get funding to transport the tutors to Yei and bring them back to Uganda. Also pray that this training will bring hope to the people in Yei, a town that is badly affected by the conflict in South Sudan.
