We are pleased to report that our implementing partner, Water for South Sudan, has drilled the well that students, led by Mr. Dave Fingado, raised over $5,500 for. They have now drilled over 400 wells since 2005!
WFSS will continue to provide access to clean water and hygiene education, led by their South Sudan team. Although parts of South Sudan continue to experience unrest, they have been able to continue drilling wells safely. Their work continues to provide grassroots development and sustainability for rural villages and schools. The installation of a new well can also serve as a starting point for conflict resolution between different groups, bringing peace and stability.
This new well is in the village of Buon-Nyoor in Aguok-North County, Gogrial State, South Sudan. The village chief is Anei Arol. GPS coordinates of this well are: 8°37'59.1"N 28°18'52.6"E
Shout-out to Mr. Dave Fingado and the Senn students who helped create this connection, which is now helping to provide fresh, clean water-and a new future-to the people in Buon-Nyoor, South Sudan.
