What an exciting day for Timpir. Not only are we able to finally receive tax deductible donations, I have also received 14 photos taken at Wäramoth primary school and sent direct to me via messenger by Wäramoth’s head teacher, Tong Ayei. Wäramoth Primary is doing absolutely brilliantly, with it’s regular 8 teachers now teaching over 700 students in Years 1-8. This year we have over 50 students in Year 8, including 20 girls, which is a testament to the quality of the teaching. As you will see from the photos, Wäramoth Primary is in dire need of further assistance. The blackboards desperately need replacing. For about $100, you can help purchase a new blackboard. Our tax deductible donations page is now up and running, you can donate through our Donate page.
Today we sent approximately AU$1500 to South Sudan to feed almost 450 students at Waramoth Primary lunch each day for the month of July. These meals are lifesaving for students and their families. Many families in South Sudan are currently in a very tenuous situation, with some choosing to flee to Khartoum in the north with the hope that they will find food there. Timpir is in a position to work with communities to reduce the disastrous effects of famine, but we desperately need the support of donors. Please consider donating to help us run this important program.
Thanks so much to all those who have donated to Timpir’s school lunch program so far. We have raised enough to run the program for one month in the two schools, it would be great if we could raise enough for another two months. This would see the children through to when crops and food becomes more available in September. Please go to the donation page for details on donating and know that every cent of your donation is spent on the ground in South Sudan.
