Become a part of "Bicycles for Sudan" action, organised as part of PAH Water Campaign! Help us to buy 8 bicycles for the caretakers of the wells we have built so far in Uror county in Southern Sudan.
The bicycles will go to 8 districts of the county, where we have drilled 24 wells, serving approx. 24 thousand people. Extensive usage results in deterioration of the wells. Local caretakers of the wells, whom we have equipped with tools, spare parts and skills necessary to look after the wells, need transport to be able to regularly inspect and repair them.
The government of Sudan demanded that the humanitarian organizations immediately leave the country. Authorities took over their property and bank accounts. It is a reaction to the warrant for arrest of the president of Sudan - Omar Hassan al-Bashir - issued bythe International Criminal Court in The Hague.
Among the organisations forced to leave Sudan are: Oxfam, Doctors Without Borders, Action Contre la Faim, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, and Care.
New water projects in Southern Sudan
In January 2009 we began a new water project in Uror county.
Thanks to the funds collected during the Water Project Campaign and individual sponsors' donations, among others Meblik company, we will build next 4 drilled wells and carry out maintenance of all damaged water facilities in the county.
One of the biggest problems for the villages in Southern Sudan region is the lack of access to drinking water. People living far from the reservoirs have to cover great distances to bring water back home. The situation is especially unjust for women and children - it is their duty to provide water for the households. As a result, women are not able to devote their time to gaining food or improving their families' standard of living. The children drop out of school and consequentially lose the chance to raise their social status.
It is already the fourth time that Polish Humanitarian Organisation (PHO) realises a campaign aiming at providing as many people as possible with an access to potable water. Fund-raising and selling silicon bracelets "I COLLECT WATER" over the previous editions of the campaign made it possible to drill 8 wells in southern Sudan. Thanks to it 7500 people got the access to safe, drinkable water.
This year we are going to continue our campaign.
In Southern Sudan that for decades was an arena for one of the bloodiest conflicts in Africa, hunger was nothing extraordinary. Till now nobody has records on how many people have died in continuous hunger disasters occurring in the 80ties and 90ties.
Such data could not be collected in war tornned Sudan at that time. Aid agencies working in the South agree though that these numbers may be higher than those of killed.
Polish Humanitarian Organisation in partnership with sudanese indigenous NGO Panykou Aganency for Relief and Development (PARAD) fisnished construction of 8 boreholes in South Bor County in Southern Sudan.
PHO is preparing to open a field mission whose main aim will be to provide water supplying systems in south Sudan. Currently works on locating the mission are being held.
