October 3, 2018 marks Water for South Sudan’s 15th anniversary.

What began in Rochester with a small seed planted by WFSS Founder Salva Dut and a committed group of Salva’s friends who graciously gave their time, their energy, and their money has grown beyond all expectations. The initial goal was to drill one well in Salva’s father’s village.

“When I dreamed of a well for my father, I never imagined that 15 years later we would still be going...and have 305 wells serving more than 300,000 people,” said Salva.
