Help provide clean water for school children in South Sudan.
Unsafe water kills 200 children every hour across our globe. In South Sudan, only 2% of the population has access to piped water on premises. The burden of not having access to clean water is largely placed upon women and girls who have to walk miles to collect water. In just one day, 200 million work hours are consumed by women and girls around the world collecting water for their families.
Your contribution to support clean water for the Zeolona Primary School in Wau County, South Sudan can change this! 100% of funds you contribute go towards building AND maintaining water well at this primary school which will serve OVER 1,000 CHILDREN. Our goal is to raise the money by June 30, 2018 so that the team can include this well in its 2019 drilling season.
You can help. Just $13.72 provides 53,550 liters of clean water for the entire school community.
The founder of Water for South Sudan, Salva, was one of the "lost boys" of Sudan. When Salva was 12 he began his incredible journey alone and on foot across multiple countries in search of refuge. Eventually he ended up in a refugee camp and was offered an opportunity to go to the U.S. as one of "the lost boys" of Sudan, where he has lived for 20 years now. A few years ago he returned to South Sudan to be reunited with his father who was dying of a waterborne illness. Upon return to back to the U.S. he started Water for South Sudan and to date have built AND maintained 304 wells and provided clean water for over 304,000 people.
