Project Partners: World Vision East Africa
Location: South Sudan
World Vision and 4Life Solutions have partnered to launch a pilot project to provide safe drinking water to the people of South Sudan. An estimated 5 million people in the country still lack access to safe water. The project, powered by the SaWa solution, aims to improve the microbial quality of drinking water and reduce deforestation in the target areas.
The project’s objectives are to increase access to safe drinking water, reduce incidences of diarrhoeal diseases among the target population, and improve the community’s overall health. The pilot will distribute 15,000 SaWa units, potentially benefiting 148,000 individuals in Tonj North County. The project is expected to contribute to multiple United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
