Programs

From Fall 2005 to May 2014, WFSS has drilled 217 successful wells with hand-pumping systems in remote villages providing the first clean, potable water. Serving half a million South Sudanese daily, the wells provide fresh, potable water daily to fulfill basic human needs. 40 successful wells were completed in the last drilling season, 2013-14. With each new well many people receive fresh, safe, clean water located in close proximity to the village.
