Hai Leben 2, Yei River State, South Sudan
Susan Mukanga is an Internally Displaced Person to Dar Salam II. She has 13 children altogether. Mukanga was living close to the Yei River in the Logobero area and works as a farmer to earn a living. While living in Dar Salam, accessing clean water was a persistent challenge to the community.
“The community was suffering by going far to fetch water just between the President’s quarters and Dar Salam Primary. These two water points are not enough for an increasing population. From today onwards, it’s an exciting moment because of the restored water well. Mothers won’t be going far to search for clean water. It brings me great happiness to see amazing guys coming to repair a borehole that was nonfunctional for two years. This means peace is prevailing and I’m hoping for a total peace in Yei River State and South Sudan at large. Thanks to all of the people behind this project for providing clean water to women, children and all of this village”.
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.
