St Joseph Secondary School, Yei River State, South Sudan

“I am a father of three children. I have been a single father since my wife divorced me three years ago. On the day the bore-hole was reopened, I arrived at St. Joseph community well with my children, my mother, and my nephews. We used to fetch water from Lutaya stream and suffered from health problems such as diarrhoea, typhoid and malaria. With no income, it was very difficult to treat diseases. I am grateful for the benefits my family and community will experience drinking from a clean water source in close proximity. Health issues will be minimised and medical expenses will no longer be my main concern.”

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.
