Water for South Sudan has been an advocate for the people of South Sudan since our founding in 2003, and we continue to assist in the development of the world’s newest nation. Since we began drilling water wells in 2005, we have never wavered from our mission: to deliver 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 and sanitation practices in areas of great need.
Our grassroots development work starts with access to fresh water, and now includes hygiene education and sanitation services, which all help bring greater health and stability to those we serve. With these efforts, we strive to help the South Sudanese people become more capable of determining their own futures, and that of their fledgling country.
As a small nonprofit organization focused on one country, we continue to grow along with this infant country. As we work to help the first steps of development, we also aim to help our team members in South Sudan develop, following the lead of our Founder, Salva Dut.
We join the world in supporting a peaceful resolution to the unrest in South Sudan. We also join the world in condemning corruption at all levels in the country.
WFSS Team Safe. Planning for 2016-17 Season
The WFSS staff and Board of Directors in Rochester, New York, is in daily contact with our South Sudan team. Our team has been busy planning for the 2016-17 season. The Leadership Team in Wau, along with WFSS Founder Salva Dut, continually monitor the situation in their immediate area, and in the entire country, and all agree that we should continue our programs in South Sudan. Our teams have proper security measures in place and continually work to ensure the safety of all team members and our entire operations center.
WFSS is grateful to all who enable our work. Thanks to the generosity of our ever growing donor base, with supporters now in all 50 US states and 33 other countries, we are poised to continue the work that has impacted more than 300,000 people since 2005.
We look forward to continuing our mission to transform lives in South Sudan. Please check back here for further updates. You may also sign up for our email newsletter, and also follow us on Facebook, Twitter and for other news, photos and updates.
