Chuei Aluel Village, Warap State, South Sudan

“My name is Angong Kuan Kuan. I am 46 years old, and I am married. I have five children – that is three boys and two girls. Among them, only two children are in school. I am very happy today because the technicians repaired our well after two weeks of breakage. I am happy that our hand pump has been repaired today. Since it broke, most of our community has been drinking water from pools around here. Some of us used to go to the Malith Kuel community to get clean water, covering a distance of 40 minutes of walking. The members of the Malith Kuel community also charged us a lot when we went to water. They tell us that we need to pay before we get water, thinking that we will break their well and must pay for its repair. And when we take water from ponds, we get sick, putting more burdens on our income earners and families. Now that our pump is repaired, we are so happy about it and thank Almighty God for making it possible to have clean water again. Thanks to your organization for sending the team to fix our well. May God bless them and their supporters.”

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.
