Where do we drill?
Water for South Sudan began drilling wells in 2005; as of June 2019, we have drilled 399 wells! Each well takes about three to four days to complete, with villagers often assisting with brush clearing and general site preparation. To ensure the safety of our drilling teams, staff in South Sudan work closely with village chiefs and regional government personnel to ensure that we only drill in areas where violence is not a regular occurrence.
