Quiz Night 2014 Report

Timpir held its annual quiz night this year on Saturday 18th October at Blackfriars Priory School, Prospect. We had over 100 people attend for the evening as well as the Mayor of Prospect, Mr David O’Loughlin who promoted the work of Timpir. Thank you to all of the members and supporters of Timpir, as well as the board members, who assisted in organizing the quiz night and a special thanks to all who attended and donated. Over $3,500.00 was raised on the night, which is equivalent of two teacher salaries for twelve months. A great evening’s entertainment and enjoyed by all.

School lunch program

As a result of the terrible situation facing the people of South Sudan at the moment, Timpir is running a school lunch program for students for the next three months. We will provide lunch for the 430 students at Waramoth Primary and 393 students at Mabok Primary for the next three months, and for many this will be the only meal they will eat each day. The program will run from now until the end of August, when food and crops will begin to be available again. Because of the current situation in South Sudan, the price of food is at a record high. As such, it will cost Timpir approximately $2500 each month to feed the approximately 800 students at our schools. We desperately need your help to raise this money.
