Wuji Primary School, Yei River State, South Sudan
“Ernesta Kiden is a resident of Wuji Payam close to Wuji Primary School Kupera County. Kiden is one of the women who resisted to go anywhere during the conflict in Kupera. She remained here until calmness was experienced in the county. For the last three years, the Borehole was broken, and the communities resorted to drinking from running wells which has caused people common sicknesses like Diarrhea, Typhoid, and skin diseases. Communities and the school body are very excited about the restoration of this water well. On behalf of the community and the school administration, Kiden gives her heartfelt gratitude to supporters for the job well done to the communities in Kupera. She concluded by saying, “Let God give you more so that you can help other communities who are thirsty 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.
