Faith Aid Initiative For Humanity Uganda program has successfully trained 70 youth leaders in Rhino camp Refugee settlement. The very intensive but exciting 8 days was marked by teachings, worship and counseling. Most tribes from South Sudan were fully represented in the training. Many Church denominations sent their youth to be trained. This kind of training started since 2017 to address the spiritual needs of young people in the refugee camps.
We are happy to have our planned Leadership training for Church and community leaders in September. 40 church and community leaders are expected to undergo 4 days of training in Yei South Sudan. This is part of the Yei Outreach Project with support from HFBI our Germany partners.
As we continue our response to the impact of the lockdown on the urban poor in the cities of Yei and Juba, South Sudan, we have set up crowdfundraising to raise funds to distribute food items to 120 Vulnerable households in each city. Your donation will be a blessing to someone in need.
If you are able and would like to contribute to one or both of these needs, please use the appropriate link(s) on our DONATE page.
(Alternatively, you can access the fundraiser for Juba, South Sudan directly below.)
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.
Next week FAITH UG will be training 50 Refugee women how to make liquid soap. This is aimed at empowering them to start their own small business and improve their livelihoods. The training will run for two weeks. Supported by The Brickworks UK, this training is a pilot livelihood development skills trainings we have done among South Sudanese refugees.
Our phase 2 Youth leaders training has been conducted successfully as from 14th to 19th May 2019. Great teaching Christian film shows for the refugee population in Ofoa 3 Rhino Camp settlement was part of the program. The next (last) phase will be on 4th September 2019.
