Just Add Water

Documenting the people, the work, the results


Just Add Water is a documentary featuring Salva Dut, a “Lost Boy of Sudan”, now an American citizen. He is the founder of Water for South Sudan, Inc., a not-for-profit 501(c)3 corporation, which raises funds and drills water wells in South Sudan’s remote villages.

The documentary follows Salva as he returns to his native land, leading a drilling team as they triumph over daunting challenges to bring safe water to one typical remote village. Salva and his team engage the villagers as partners in the entire process which transforms the life of the community.

Just Add Water is featured on the Water for South Sudan Presentation DVD, which includes many videos from this website and more.
