BENEFITING: WATER FOR SOUTH SUDAN

Sam Tegge

THE STORY:

Would you drink water containing infectious bacteria, mud, and other contaminants? I’m assuming the answer is no. However, this is the reality for many around the world. They struggle daily to find clean water. Often, the burden of gathering water falls on the women and children, more specifically, young girls. They must walk upwards of 8 hours a day to find water. The time spent finding water takes them away from school. In this time they could learn skills, which could propel them out of the vicious cycle of poverty. Additionally, the time spent finding water is in vain because this water is not like ours, which has been clean and sanitized many times over. It is from either a pond, marsh or a hand dug hole, where the water is unsanitary—littered with mud and infectious parasites and bacteria. But, water is essential to life and this is the only water available to these people, so they drink it. This leads to many health problems caused by disease-causing parasites and bacteria. The infections are most prevalent in the young and elderly, who experience pain, sickness and eventually death. Although the situation seems very bleak, there is hope. The not-for-profit 501(c)(3) Water for South Sudan’s mission is to delivers direct, transformative and sustainable quality-of-life service to the people of South Sudan by efficiently providing access to clean, safe water and improving hygiene practices in areas of great need. The goal of our fundraiser is to raise at least $5,000 in order to build a well for a village in South Sudan. The well will provide clean and accessible water. Invariably, wherever a well is built, in successive years, a hospital and a school will likely be built. By simply providing a village with clean, accessible water, we are also bringing accessible education and healthcare— which are fundamental human rights. Donating even $10 is empowering the people of South Sudan to shape a better future for themselves and generations to come.
