Puriti Boma, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Jane Su’dda is 50 years old living in Puriti Boma. She serves as a midwife in the village, and that’s her profession. She didn’t go for refuge in the camp except for her children with a reason to access education. The community solely depends on Puriti Stream as a source of water. “Life was never easy in Puriti Boma,” said Jane. Sicknesses are regularly experienced by the people here, mainly waterborne diseases, scurvy, and itching from infected and dry skin, this is caused by dirty water. Today is a joyful day for the community of Puriti for clean water again.”
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.
