Jamara Boma, South Sudan
“Nelson Kenyi is a Headmen in Jamara Boma. He’s 37 with a family of four children and close relatives that live with him. He had been here all along with the difficult situation in his county as a leader. Many community members moved some miles from the road due to fear of insecurity along the main road. As everywhere in South Sudan, women suffer the most when it comes to issues to issues with clean water, especially young school girls. This happens when there is no nearby, clean water point. “Today, our sub-bomas, bomas, and payams are privileged to have clean water since our borehole has been restored.” – Nelson Kenyi Currently, there is relative calmness in Kupera County, and Nelson believes that by January next year, people will return to their various places. Thank you for repairing boreholes in Kupera County. Clean water leads to a healthier life.”
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.
