H.R.F. & ARC
partner to build wells in S. Sudan
Northern Bahr el Ghazal (NBG) is a state located in the northwest region of South Sudan, bordering Sudan to the north. It is made up of five counties: Aweil North, Aweil West, Aweil Centre, Aweil East, and Aweil South and has a total population of about 720,000. Since the separation of Sudan from South Sudan, NGB has seen an influx of refugees fleeing from Sudan. Many communities include a population made up of both hosts and returnees. Although violence has emerged in recent weeks across South Sudan, NBG remains one of the most peaceful states in the country. South Sudan remains one of the poorest countries in the world, with a life expectancy of only 54 years and over 4 million of the 11 million people in the country live on less than $2 per day. NBG is the most rural state in South Sudan, with 92% of the population living in rural areas. NBG is also the poorest state in South Sudan, over 75% of the population lives below the poverty line.
We’re fortunate enough to just turn on a faucet to have access to life’s most essential ingredient: clean water. For many people, though, getting access to something so basic is incredibly difficult. Through our charitable organizations we can make this happen!
Where there’s thirst, there’s need. We partner with communities, charities, and strategic partners to drill wells, develop clean, sustainable water solutions. We need your help, though.
