The water they drink is often contaminated with parasites and bacteria and, as a result, disease runs rampant throughout greater East Africa. Water for South Sudan drills wells that provide clean drinking water for the thirsty. This effort helps to prevent disease and stabilize villages… and lives.

According to MCC alumnus Salva Dut, founder of Water for South Sudan, “The challenge is enormous to those of us who uphold the sanctity of human life Photo of villagers with Water for Sudan sign and the moral imperative to provide water to the thirsty.
