A Long Walk to Water

Water for South Sudan

Water for South Sudan is a program created by Salva Dut which drills wells for villages in South Sudan.[2] Previously, families had to trek for hours just to get contaminated water, leaving no time for children to go to school and often infecting villagers with diseases. Creating wells not only gives villagers access to clean, safe drinking water, it also helps with education and economic development.[1]
