Handwashing Stations Installation
We installed 10 handwashing stations at strategic locations in the 6 villages of Araing and supplied them with sufficient handwashing detergents
Massive Mask Production
At the initial stages of Covid-19 preparations, HOPE for Ariang distributed 600 facemasks to most-at-risk persons in the community such as long-distance traders and motorbike operators.
To reach more people across South Sudan, we partnered with three other organizations to fund a massive facemasks production project. Together, we recruited local tailors to make 10,000 facemasks that were distributed across all major towns in South Sudan
