SCARVES FOR WATER
Mayual is a community that was created out of conflict.
The CHALK scarf supports the village of Mayual, in South Sudan. We select one scarf colour per region and when we sell 500 of these limited edition scarves we’re able to drill a well, bringing clean water where none existed. This changes every life in the community for the better.
Mayual is home to over 5,000 families who have fled tribal warfare in South Sudan. New residents face hunger and poverty as they struggle to create a new life from nothing. The land is ideal for farming, but a lack of clean water threatens to halt any development before it starts. Children can’t attend school, women spend hours fetching water instead of growing gardens or caring for their families, and many people are ill from contaminated water.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Having already been through so much hardship and violence, the people of Mayual are eager to start a new life.
All they need is water.
