Nyorich Village, Warrap State, South Sudan

“My name is Manut Ngong Akoi, I am a father of Seven children of ages ranging from five years to twenty-two years. Five children are in secondary school while the other two are in Primary school. The broken well caused us a lot of suffering before it was fixed. Our community well is always overcrowded with many people from other communities and is not enough for this large population. Therefore, we use the well from morning to evening and that causes frequent breakdowns. Now we have hope that we can make small repairs quickly since the well repair mechanics are the people we know by names and where they reside. They will come quickly when we contact them. Now we will work hand in hand with them for the wellbeing of our community to make sure that there is provision of clean and safe drinking water for our consumption.”

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.
