Mundu, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Agnes Pita is 43 years old with five children. She stayed in Mundu residential area throughout the difficult moments in Kupera. Pita is a farmer. She produces crops such as maize, groundnuts sweet potatoes as well as keeping livestock to provide her basic needs at home. Unfortunately, because of the war, she’s left with few products because what she had was cleared by rebel forces. When it comes to accessing clean water, the communities in Mundu suffered severely by harvesting water from iron roofs during rain hours or going deep to the jungle to find water in the ground. This is too risky for a woman like her in areas with insecurity. Pita is happy for the Supporters of WIB and great friends of Kupera County communities. Thank you so much for empowering us with the fight for clean water in South Sudan.”
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.
