We just witnessed a very special occasion. Mende recently returned from a trip to Karko, Nuba Mountains. It was first time that Mende reunited with her family in the village of her birth. As you could imagine, this carries a great significance for her.

During her visit she witnessed the water well (one of our projects) in full operation. She saw firsthand impactful that project was for the young women (gathering water) and young men (shepherding) in the Karko and the surrounding villages.

She visited the construction site the maternity clinic, our on-going project. There remains work to be done on the bathrooms and some minor but important finishing touches. All the men in the village were away for the harvest season at the time; work was to resume once they return. Mende suspects it will officially open in the coming months.

For the future of her village, the elders have requested support with the school. The current building has capacity for 6 of 8 classes. The other 2 classes must be taught by their teachers outside in the open air, under a tree. They are therefore requesting support for the construction of the other two classes. They have the bricks and will volunteer the labour, but they need funds for roofing, doors, windows etc.

Overall, the trip was a success, and we look forward to updating you soon with pictures of the finalized maternity clinic.
