Thon Met African Peace Foundation
Create a safe community for displaced women and children of South Sudan, in which they can make homes, learn, play, and become self-sufficient.
We begin by rehabilitating the women and children--providing medical care and basic necessities--to help them recover from the traumas experienced as refugees of war.
We provide education and training in agricultural skills so that the village can one day function as a self-sufficient cooperative.
We also strive to raise awareness in the United States about the condition of those living in African refugee camps and the ongoing conflict in South Sudan.
It takes 2 hours for our villagers to reach the nearest fresh water on food. A bicycle would cut this time by more than half.
Thon Met has partnered with a medical group based in Gambela. A doctor visits the village on an ongoing visit. A medical check up for one of the children costs $25.
Pens, pencils, notebooks. For just $75 you could be the amazing donor who outfits our village's open-air school.
Thanks to the amazing generosity of our supporters, we have just completed construction of a second latrine in our village.
This is a big step towards providing our villagers an increased sense of humanity, privacy, and safety.
