Promoting health and wellbeing of the vulnerable children, women, and men
Health is at the very core of much of the world’s poverty and suffering. Deadly diseases like AIDS and malaria are absolutely devastating in many areas, leaving parents without children, and many orphans who must fend for themselves. By launching health care programs, Nyarweng foundation of South Sudan strive to lowering the incidence of horrific diseases like these by teaching methods of prevention.

Poverty threatens the wellbeing of families; kill many war orphans, and widows.
In the now war-torn South Sudan, children are left without parents or a way to survive, and often end up on the street. Nyarweng foundation of South Sudan, Inc comprehensives steps includes are not limited to providing family with food, shelter, and cares. In the now war torn South Sudan, adults and children often are lacking the education and literacy they need to be successful.

Our grass roots plan are to empower women and children and give those who missed schooling opportunities a chance for a new beginning through education.
In the now war-torn South Sudan, people stuck in an apparently endless cycle of poverty, with no way to provide for their families, and no way to improve their situation. Those who do have jobs sometimes make less than $1 a day, barely enough to survive.
These hardworking individuals are desperate for a chance to better themselves. We understand that one of the best ways to boost people out of the cycle of poverty is by providing livelihoods. Through small farms, livestock, job training, and encouragement, Nyarweng Foundation of South Sudan is giving men and women the ability to support themselves and their families.
Over 98% of the populations of Southern Sudan live in extreme poverty; about 89% are illiterate and can’t find a job to support their families; about 70% of women and children are widows and orphans respectively. The Nyarweng Foundation of Sudan is committed to responding to every individual’s and family’s needs.
Charitable programs will be started soon after NFoS begins operations in the Nyarweng region, so that we can identify most urgent needs of the poorest citizens. We will hold meetings with community representatives, and once the needs have been identified, we will develop programs tailored for the specific community. Then NFoS board of directors will assign funds and leaders who will oversee the program and ensure its successful implementation.
We plan to conduct distributions of food, clothing, and other necessities. Some of the supplies will be collected in the USA and shipped to Southern Sudan; food and staples will be purchased in the country. We are currently starting to collect clothing and shoes (both for children and adults), baby supplies and English school books. Many items will be taken with us on site visits; when we have the necessary funds, we will ship large loads by container. In the Nyarweng areas of Jonglei, NFoS will buy and distribute throughout the communities:
- Rice and other foodstuffs
- Plastic bowls and cups, forks and spoons
- Vitamins and medical supplies (aspirin, bandages, ointments, etc.)
- Personal hygiene items.
The distributions will be made tentatively once every 3 months by NFoS members and local volunteers. We may eventually operate soup kitchens on a daily basis to provide a hot meal twice a day to the homeless and needy. Individuals will just need to show up at the location and provide basic information about them so we can follow up with them to monitor their further needs. However, it is unlikely that NFoS would give cash to individuals or make payments on their behalf.
When funds and human resources are available, we may establish shelters for the homeless or for abused women and children. These shelters will provide a transition place whereby they can be removed from domestic violence, learn new life skills and employable skills, such as sewing, carpentry, computer skills, etc.
Eventually NFoS may start providing sponsorships for those community members who wish to enhance their skills and capabilities necessary to seek employment and lead healthy and productive lives.
All services will be provided free of charge and will be supported through donations, grants from philanthropic organizations, and fundraisers.
