Water Works!

Celebrating Peace and Development 

Sunday, October 8th: 12:00pm-2:30pm

Brunch at ARTISANworks, 565 Blossom Road, Rochester NY 14610

Join Water for South Sudan Founder Salva Dut on Sunday, October 8th at ARTISANworks in Rochester to celebrate another successful drilling season and honor our Founder's Award and Long Walk Award recipients. The award winners were all instrumental in helping Salva in the early days of WFSS, working passionately and giving generously to further the mission of the organization.

The news from South Sudan recently has been difficult and many people are displaced from their homes. However, there is also hope for the country and for the people of South Sudan. By continuing to drill wells and provide access to clean water, WFSS Is helping to develop this very young nation. Unrest in the country makes our work more important than ever.

Browse the WFSS Marketplace and network with friends from 12:00-12:30pm. Program will begin at 12:30pm.

Sponsorship Opportunities are available for this event.
