Dhok Paan Mayen Village, Warrap State, South Sudan

“My name is Akech Angou Yai, I am a 38-year-old father, blessed with ten children, six children are studying at primary school and the rest haven’t enrolled to school yet, I entirely depend on farming as my daily activity for a living. As I speak now on Dhok Paan Mayen Well with GPS coordinates of 8.316079 and 28384559, the well stopped working, we had to travel to Dhok Paan Magot Well and Aker Abuok Well which are very far from here. Fortunately, our well is fixed and whole village of Dhok Paan Mayen with 48 households will resume taking water from here with an estimated population of 288 people which always benefit in this well. The issue that led this well to stop working was the cylinder which got disconnected and definitely ceased to release water, it’s now reconnected/fixed by WESI technicians and clean drinking water has now been provided to the needy people and livestock of Dhok Paan Mayen Village as whole.”

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.
