WFSS is pleased to announce that The Prem Rawat Foundation has awarded a grant of $10,000 to WFSS to drill fresh water wells in South Sudan. These funds will be used during the 2012-13 drilling season, set to begin in December.
“Water for South Sudan is pleased to be partnering with The Prem Rawat Foundation once again,” said Board Chair Christopher Moore. “Through their generous efforts, thousands of people in South Sudan will have access to fresh, clean water.”
David Weinberg, a volunteer grant reviewer for The Prem Rawat Foundation, said that the foundation was drawn to Water for South Sudan because the wells it builds are sustainable.
"The great thing about Water for South Sudan is they build these wells, they train people to maintain the wells, and they retain their own equipment," said Weinberg. "It's a great return on your investment from a humanitarian standpoint."
