Wuji Payam HQ, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Selina Nyoka is a resident of Wuji Payam Kupera County. She stayed in Wuji Payam through the conflict while the rest of the community members fled for safety in the neighbouring Country in Uganda as refugees. Nyoka is left alone without any son or daughter. She lives with neighbours in the community. As far as the lives of people are concerned, access to clean water remained a tough fight for the people in Wuji Payam. There was no clean source except open seasonal unclean water in the villages. “Now that our borehole is fixed, it will attract many people to come back to their abandoned homes. Inaccessibility to clean water is another threat to the people compared to insecurity,” said Nyoka. Nyoka added she’s amongst the lucky individuals in Kupera County whose water well is functioning and she’s very happy for work well done. Thank you very much for the support of the people of Kupera.”
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.
