Bojor II, Yei River State, South Sudan
Forty five year old Isaac Wani is a resident of Bojor II. While many left the community during the civil conflict of 2016, he continued to live in Bojor II. He works a watchman at Bros Construction Company. In 2018, the borehole began to produce water with rust, and the platform needed repair. Water would pool on the platform because it did not drain properly and became a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Because of this, cases of malaria increased among community members. The community began to use the well at Christ the King school. The increase of people lined up to use the well at the school caused issues with the students and teachers at it was a disruption to their routine. Students had to wait in line for water and fight the crowd rather than optimize their study times. Tensions often arose among all who needed water. Isaac said that his family and neighbours are so grateful to have access to clean water in their village once again. The worry to fetch water will no longer interfere with their work, their health, and their home life. He is grateful they will no longer be a burden to Christ the King school as well.”

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.
