Empowering communities to access clean, safe drinking water.


ABOUT Water for South Sudan

Salva Dut’s experience of civil war in Sudan, and growing up as a “lost boy” in refugee camps, gave him first-hand insight into the challenges people face. Challenges that he’s tackling from the ground up – literally – by helping communities drill water wells. To date, the organization has brought clean safe water to over 1,500,000 people – and it’s ready to do even more.

They don’t have anything. And they need someone, a person – just a little thing – to open a door … to where they can change their whole lives by themselves.” Salva Dut
