Overview

Providing clean water to Pancui provided the village with a second chance.

Project Type

Water

Introduction

For years the people of Pancui in South Sudan drank nothing but dirty water from a dangerous hole they had dug - one that was a breeding ground for malaria and a death trap for livestock that regularly fell in.


Once that source dried up, children stopped attending school so they could fetch water in distant villages. After drilling a borehole in Pancui in 2012 everyone became healthier, the children returned to school and the livestock flourished.

We drilled a borehole in Pancui in March 2012 that provides the village with a steady source of clean water. Already the villagers are healthier. The livestock are safe. The children can go to school again. 
Where there is clean water to drink, joy flows.

IMPACT

Changing lives feels good.

Especially when they're as lovely as the people in Pancui are.

This is a remote, untouched community rooted in tradition - with herdsmen, hunters and gatherers.

Old well dried up after a few months - leaving the village 7-8 months without water.
