    from Diaspora Action Australia Added 219 0 0

    Rose from Mamaland speaks to us about their recently completed container project, and their plans for a new project. The container project, the first for the newly formed Mamaland Foundation, involved sending a shipping container full of hospital, educational, work and everyday items to Juba, South Sudan, from Melbourne Australia, with many items kindly donated from the local community. Now Mamaland plans to reopen a kitchen in Juba to provide employment, training, and hope for women. Once up and running, it would also have the capacity to provide meals for homeless children.
