Imagine the temperature is 120 degrees. No shade because itâ€™s the desert. You have to walk for hours to get enough water to live until the next day. This is daily life for hundreds of thousands of people in South Sudan. They collect surface water from ponds and ditches or haul it up from hand dug wells. It is often contaminated with parasites like the guinea worm and Cholera bacteria. Ironically, Africaâ€™s largest aquifer sits directly beneath Sudan.â€¨â€¨ Salva Dut, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, founded Water for South Sudan, a non-profit organization, to supply fresh water to people in South Sudan â€“ one village at a time, drilling boreholes and installing pumps. Through these simple acts, lives are transformed. This is his story.
