Summary

Across South Sudan, broken wells pose a significant challenge, often forcing communities to return to accessing unsafe water sources. Supporting the rehabilitation of wells is crucial for our sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) initiatives, ensuring uninterrupted access to clean water for communities in need. Well rehabilitation ensures access to clean water and restores hope, health, and dignity to communities across South Sudan.

Challenge

Imagine relying on a well for your family's water, and it's endangered of becoming unusable due to simple broken parts, a crumbling cement platform, or a need for drilling deeper to reach the refillable aquifer. For many rural communities in South Sudan, this is a reality.

Solution

Our dedicated WFSS rehabilitation team works tirelessly to upgrade degrading wells, ensuring uninterrupted access to clean water for those in need. By drilling deeper, replacing pipes or broken hand pumps, reinforcing structures, and innovating solutions to prevent contamination, well rehabilitations revitalize communities that rely on these wells.

Long-Term Impact

One well rehabilitation brings new life to a broken well for a community of 650 people, renewing hope, health, and dignity while ensuring the long-term sustainability of a water source.
