Kuju Merok Boma, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Alex Lubari is from Kujo Merok boma Mundu Payam. He is 48 years old with six children. Alex lives with his family and together with his relatives. When the fight intensified, he moved deeper to the bush for safety until calmness was attained from gunshots. As he left for safety, the Borehole was broken by armed men. While in the bush, people were drinking from an open well, which was not safe for living. When the government forces liberated Kupera, immediately, he returned home knowing about the repair of the boreholes. Alex added that more broken water wells need to be fixed to encourage more people to return to their original places to drink from clean sources. Clean water will prevent communities from getting water-borne diseases. Your efforts as partners for peace are much appreciated by the people of Kujo Merok boma and Kupera County at large. Thank you!”
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.
