Likutet, Yei River State, South Sudan
This is Jenifer Sadia a resident of Likutet in old Payam Mukaya county. She’s 36 years old with five children staying in Yei to access a good education. Jenifer serves as a cook in Mukaya County quest house whenever visitors come to Mukaya. She stayed in Mukaya to enable cultivate food crops to support her and the children have food to eat and school fees. She said, accessing clean water was nothing to think about because communities have given up and became hopeless since the insecurity destabilized everything in the county. The common source of water is open surface water from local wells and streams which is not safe for drinking and some times people with iron roofs harvest rainwater during the rainy season. She added that it’s difficult to get water during dry season currently because all water source is dry. Restoring this borehole like now is life-saving for the community of Likutet in Mukaya. Thanks a lot for availing clean water for the people of Likutet, Mukaya.
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.
