Grant Award Helps Transform Lives

Water for Sudan, Inc. receives a $30,000 grant award from The Prem Rawat Foundation


The Prem Rawat Foundation strives to address fundamental human needs so that people's lives are transformed, allowing them to live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity.  Monies from this grant will be used to drill fresh water wells in Southern Sudan. The award is directed for the building of three well systems including installation materials, equipment, tools, and well maintenance.  The wells will be drilled in the Wau Region of Southern Sudan, an area of concentrated population.

"We are most grateful for the generosity of the Prem Rawat Foundation," says Salva Dut.  "They are helping Water for Sudan provide these destitute people one of the most basic human needs for life — clean water."
