Build a well in Sudan
The people of Buluk in the Juba area of Sudan have limited access to reliable sources of clean water. Children are usually tasked with fetching water from rivers and ponds, meaning they cannot go to school.
A Penny Appeal deep well was installed, which is benefiting over 340 people. Importantly, it allows the children to attend classes. The residents said: “We are very grateful for this deep well. We will always keep you in our prayers.”
A child dies from drinking dirty water every 20 seconds. That’s 4,000 children every day whose deaths could have been prevented.
You can help save lives by building a well.
For millions of people in developing countries getting water is not as simple as turning on the tap. They have to walk for miles to reach the nearest water source. And when they get there the water is dirty and diseased. They drink it knowing it could kill them.
Build a Thirst Relief well and you can give families reliable access to safe, clean water. This allows them to drink, wash, make wudu, grow crops and water their animals safely. It will mean they don’t have to spend hours fetching water each day, freeing up time to go to school, work or look after their families.
Clean water means healthier lives, improved livelihoods and, ultimately, a route out of poverty.
