Water now a resource in the hands of villagers thanks to solar pump in South Sudan



The new system now providing access to clean drinking water has been developed thanks to funding from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and the technical work and knowledge of AVSI in collaboration with the village authorities. Fourteen solar energy panels were installed, which power an underground electric pump connected to pipes which lead to 3 strategically-located faucets: one close to the health clinic, one in the village market, and a third at the school, where AVSI also build two sanitary facilities, separated by gender.
