Strike! Water for a new well!

Dear Global Giving donors,

Our goal of $15,000 has been reached and our "Global Giving" well will be drilled this coming drilling season (2011-12). Thank you for your generosity in funding this well! The Water for Sudan teams have just finished the 2010-11 season, drilling 28 wells this year, which brings our grand total to 104 wells since 2005. While the WFS crews were never in danger, they did need to wait several weeks after the January 9, 2011 referendum, in which South Sudan voted overwhelming to become independent from North Sudan, to be certain they could drill safely. Our founder and president Salva Dut was back in the US briefly this spring and is now back in South Sudan, constructing a new compound for our drilling rigs and equipment. He is very much looking forward to independence for his country and is glad he will be in South Sudan for their independence day on July 9. While we have just finished the 2010-11 drilling season, preparation has already begun for 2011-12, which will begin in November or December. Thank you for being a part of our success. We look forward to continuing our mission of bring fresh clean water to the people of South Sudan. Look for a new Water for Sudan drilling project to be posted soon on Global Giving.
