Where We Drill

Water for South Sudan's operations teams, based in Wau, work in remote villages in the Bahr el Ghazal region in South Sudan.


 

Prior to WFSS building a well, these isolated villages have no access to clean water. Each well serves approximately 600 to 750 people, depending on the size of the village and the proximity to other villages not having access to clean water.

 

 
 

WFSS supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #6 to ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. 


Well Rehabilitation Project

 

Rehab Project Strengthens and Improves Wells

  • In 2017, WFSS launched its rehabilitation team. This rehab team travels back to wells
    drilled in earlier years to upgrade the cement platforms around the wells. Rehabilitation
    of a well involves the complete replacement of the platform and animal feeding trough.

  • In the case of maintenance, villagers can obtain repair parts and replace damaged ones as they occur.
