So S4J team, we do hope you have secured your number.

Comrades and the whole experience has been so good to the S4J brand in the years gone by. We have been able to do so much good for the people of Sudan:

  • We have been able to fund the drilling of a borehole in Nimule, Southern South Sudan
  • We have sent 100 000 Sudanese dialect Bibles to the refugee camp in Kakuma in July of last year
  • We were able to assist our Children’s Fund partners with funds for their upliftment work in the Nuba Mountains
  • And this year we will be able to assist the Beja People of North Eastern Sudan with Social Upliftment Programs.

This season is going to be super exciting as we are planning three recruitment drives at races and we are extending our presence into the corporate world as well.

We wish all our friends at S4J a safe and injury-free training program up to Comrades. We promise you…we will see you on the road.

Warm Regards – Eddie

Juba, South Sudan – Meeting new Friends

The IAS Team at Nimule

I arrived in Juba with so excited to be able to at last see the Water we have been so hard at work fundraising for. It was hot and muggy. The airport facilities were rudimentary to be kind. We got through and on our way to the IAS compound on the outskirts of Juba

Resting after a bumpy flight from Nimule

 

The men and women do such a great job out here against huge odds that you can just admire them. The bureaucracy in Juba is astounding. In order to want to assist people with water boreholes you have to jump through a myriad of loops. It is ridiculous.

The hill just outside our compound

On the last day of my stay in Juba I got hold of a Boda-boda, which in our language is a scooter and did some sight-seeing. It was an experience. There is so much hopelessness mingled with hope that the landscape becomes confusing at times.

Ate a great deal of these little monsters

Next stop, Nimule! Next week.
