With your help, we can drill and restore 325 wells and rebuild communities in South Sudan in 2019, bringing clean water to hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom have very little in the way of food, money or personal belongings.
With a 5-year civil war now behind them, thousands of South Sudanese families who were forced to flee their villages years ago are finally returning home. Home at last!
Now that there's peace, the people of South Sudan are faced with the monumental task of rebuilding their lives, their homes, and their communities. But there's one thing they must have to succeed, and that's WATER!
While we've spent the last decade digging and restoring wells across the country, many wells in communities throughout the country are still in urgent need of repair after years of neglect and destruction.
Our goal is to raise $140,000 by Dec. 31 to ensure that every returning refugee has access to the water they need to rebuild their lives when they finally make it HOME AT LAST.
Your contribution to our Home at Last campaign will directly impact the people of South Sudan. People Like Joyce.
Joyce and her 7 children were forced to flee the violence in South Sudan several years ago with nothing but the clothes on their backs. She and her husband were separated in the chaos of the war. Having spent many years in a refugee camp, she was eager to come home when the fighting stopped.
She and her children recently made the long journey home. Although her husband is still nowhere to be found, Joyce is determined to rebuild the lives of her children and herself.
Fortunately, we recently restored a well in Joyce's village. Joyce and her family are among the lucky ones. They've returned to a village with enough clean water for everyone. Water for drinking. Water for bathing, cooking and cleaning. Water for making bricks to build a new home. Water to plant and irrigate crops.
But there are still too many people, villages, and communities without access to clean water.
You can help restore and rebuild the lives of the people like Joyce by making your year-end gift today.
