Mathok Geng 2, Warrap State, South Sudan

“My name is Nyateng Deng Chier. I am 33 years old and a mother of three kids, who are all girls. I gave birth to the first born girl and twins as the second born kids. They are all enrolled in classes 3 and 2 in Primary School, and I am doing a retail business selling tea in the Lietnhom market as my main activity of living with my children in Mathok Geng borehole. This borehole was first repaired on April 14, 2023 by Mechanics, which served many households with provisions of clean water up to 29th of July, that’s three days ago when it developed an issue that led to disappearance of water. With the little amount collected from the community, I called the mechanics, who have come to repair this borehole. They disassembled the borehole and discovered the chain disconnected and the pump cylinder disconnected from the rod. The new chain was installed, and the cylinder was assembled back to the borehole, which made a complete repair that brought clean drinking water.”

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.
