Limuru Market, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Anite Susan is a resident of Limura. She’s 25 years old with three children schooling in Limuro Primary School. Susan lived in Limuro before the recent conflict in Kupera County. According to Susan’s experience, together with her family, they were rotating in the village until peace was realized in Kupera County. Currently, Susan is operating a small restaurant in Limuro Market offering local foods, tea, and fresh African coffee, and that was where the repair crew had their first meal in Limuro, Kupera County. As a relative peace is ascertained in the County, accessibility to clean water became another battle in the communities of Kupera County. Most of the Boreholes are broken because of the conflict, and an insufficient number of technicians to rehabilitate the water wells. Today Kupera County is blessed with the visit of WIB repair crew. Susan could no longer go a far distance to fetch water to serve her customers and likewise to the communities in Limuro. Susan is very thankful to the partners who showed love and interest in serving her community Kupera.”
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.
