Improve community health in South Sudan by providing clean water and sanitation
After decades of conflict and mass displacement, South Sudan presents some of the worst human development indicators in the world. A lack of safe drinking water and inadequate sanitation facilities cause high rates of waterborne diseases which claim thousands of lives every year.
With your support we aim to:
- Improve the availability of safe, clean drinking water by constructing new water sources and repairing existing ones;
- Reduce the incidence of preventable diseases by supporting the building of toilets and promoting improved community hygiene and sanitation practices;
- Ensure that water sources can be maintained and managed by local communities in the long term.
Who will benefit
This year, 30,000 members of host communities, as well as returnees and displaced persons, will benefit directly from access to clean water, toilet construction and hygiene promotion. Over four years, 85,000 people will directly benefit.
