Water for South Sudan is a non-profit organization started in Rochester, NY in 2005 by Salva Dut, a Lost Boy from Sudan who came to the United States after spending nearly a decade in a refugee camp. After learning of his father's illness from water-borne disease, Salva made it his mission, with the support of his new American friends, to create an organization to raise money and perform well-drilling operations to bring clean water to South Sudanese villagers. The organization raises money and drills wells in remote villages in South Sudan to provide clean water to those who currently don't have access to clean water. Since 2005, as of November 2013, WFSS has drilled 177 wells and provided a lifetime of clean drinking water to over 400,000 people in South Sudan who previously only had access to contaminated, dirty water. The 2013-2014 drilling season begins this December with the goal of 40 wells for the season. A $10 donation provides clean water to one person. A $50 donation can provide a lifetime of clean water to an entire South Sudanese family. Thank you so much for your support!
