Our Success Stories
In the third week of June 2022, a CHIDDO Education staff visited Mankuai primary school and met Nyelieth Ret Zuor, a mother aged 33 with five children who was learning together with young children was asked: "Why was she sitting with children in the class?. "She replied that, I am learning with my kids. “I want to learn but the distance of the school from my residential area prevented me to go to school. Luckily now, school is just a few meters away from my house, so I decided to join the school" she added. CHIDDO staff responded to her, "go ahead for what you have chosen, but I am wondering you are a house wife who supposed to do house responsibilities and duties. How will you cope up with this? She replied, I have enough time during the day and also the little thing I'll acquire in the school will benefit me in different ways. This will make me different from other women who failed to join the school," she responded. Finally, I thanked her to go to learn in school to cope up with the daily life to: 1). Acquire knowledge to prevent contracting diseases in her family.2). Be able to read and write to help her children's learning by checking their work daily.3). Know how to sign and recognize her name. She promised to continue her education even though she faces difficulties.
Nyalok Juor Reidor (28 years old widow) was one of the beneficiaries who received non-food items distributed by CHIDDO WASH team on June 15th 2022, in Bentiu; she was very delighted to receive a very big sleeping mat for the first time. My kids and I used to sleep on an old papyrus before I received a mat from CHIDDO. I had been staying in the town for many months, but I had never received this kind of item from any organization a part from CHIDDO, which came this year. I am a widow and taking care of my two kids. Earlier in the morning, I could go with other women into the river to cut papyrus, which I could dry and sell it to the people who need it. Her village submerged by water and she came and settled in the state capital Bentiu, which was protected by government and NGOs with dyke, she left everything in her home due to flooding that submerged her village during the night time.
