Akuoch Village, Warrap State, South Sudan
“My name is Abot Madut Abot, I am a father of five children of ages ranging from three years to fifteen years. Among them are three children in school and two children will join soon if COVID 19 will allow the school to reopen. When our well broke down, it was hard to get it fixed quickly and this delay in the repair caused us and our animals a lot of suffering. Now we are happy for the availability of spare parts and the well repair mechanics who are trained in our community since we can reach out for them as soon as possible. Now I hope that our maintenance circle will be complete because well repair mechanics and spare parts are available. We will make sure that the fees are collected and the well is maintained properly.”

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
