Speaking to Gurtong in Wau, SSWGA Chairlady, Mary Emilio Baffuka, attributed their ongoing commitments to mobilizing food support to their national army at the frontline and the wounded in different hospitals across the country particularly wounded soldiers admitted at Wau Military Hospital.
“We have started mobilizing food contribution for now about five days in the state of which our state government has already supported us with cash money to buy food that we are now preparing in different types,” Baffuka said.
She said they started with preparing dry paper food, peanut, dry meat and cakes ready to send to the frontline.
Baffuka urged all women in the country to do the same and bring contribution of any kind that they can afford to help the army.
“Am very happy to our state government because different ministries have released to us our partner women to join our hands in making this positive work,” she said.
She said women fought for independence for more than 21 years and are doing what would be possible for the people to be free.
Peace talks sponsored by the regional African body IGAD in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa aimed at ending the fighting have failed to progress on ceasefire.
