Lupapa, Yei River State, South Sudan
“This is Joice Modo, she lives in Jigomoni after getting Displaced from Lupapa Residential Area in Yei town. She’s 50 years old with seven adult children plus grandchildren. Currently, she keeps visiting her home in Lupapa and preparing to relocate back. But she was not certain where she would access clean water. When she noticed that there are people on the grounds repairing the borehole she came to the water point carrying a watering can to fetch clean water for drinking at her farm. Joice is very happy for the repair of the borehole and she said she can’t wait to be back home in Lupapa just after finishing thatching her huts. In a very humble and special manner, she would like to thank Drop4Drop Canteen for sponsoring the repair for this borehole for the communities to access abundant fresh clean water. The restored borehole is a great blessing to individuals and families. Especially for those who move to their various farms along this borehole. Indeed, the community will be more blessed this year.”

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.
