Hello friends,

On behalf of Darfur Women Network, I would like to share with you our excited news. Thank  you so much for your strong support.

During the rainy season and the end of the harvest the refugees suffer a shortage of water. They have to clean the wells to be able to get water. Cleaning up the wells means the refugees would designate volunteers to tie them with a rope around the waist of a young man.

The volunteers would be sent carefully down 12 meters in the depth of the wells. The container and shelf should follow them to the well. They should clean up the wells and would remove the dirt and trash by pulling the rope. The refugees around the well will pull the volunteer out of the well. Afterwards, the well would be ready for serving our refugees community.

Challenges: Risky and dangerous for the volunteers who would allow people to hold the unsafe cord to get them deep into the wells. In addition, it is painful to be pulled out with a rope, they have no safety tools.

Solution: Provide safety tools to those who clean up the wells.

Accomplishment of the first stage of the project: providing safety tools:
