Brand New Water Treatment Plant | Oxfam GB
Description: In South Sudan, one in two people don’t have access to clean water. Many of them use river water for cooking and drinking, causing water-borne diseases like typhoid and cholera. Oxfam’s brand new water treatment plant in the Gumbo area of Juba will provide clean water to 24,000 people. This will help stop the spread of disease and keep people safe. https://donate.oxfam.org.uk/southsudan

Description: Stand with refugees, share the message.
Uganda now hosts over 1 million South Sudanese refugees living in the different settlements of Arua, Adjumani, Yumbe and Lamwo districts. The vast majority of refugees – 86 per cent – are women and children who need specific support to keep them safe from rape, beatings, torture, hunger and abandonment. Uganda is also a host country for refugees from DRC, Burundi, and CAR.
One of the settlements is Imvepi Refugee Settlement opened in February 2017 and currently hosting more than 300,000 refugees; with over 800 new arrivals every day.
97% of the water in the settlement is trucked and the remaining 3% is sourced from existing boreholes that have been rehabilitated as more sustainable water solutions are being looked into.
James, an Oxfam Public Health Engineering Officer, explains the situation and the work Oxfam is doing, reaching thousands of South Sudan refugees with vital clean water.
The South Sudan refugee response in Uganda and across the region is severely underfunded. In Uganda, of the UN appeal for $673million this year(2017), only 17 per cent has been received so far.
At the recent Refugee Solidarity Summit the Government of Uganda appealed for $2billion to meet the humanitarian and development needs of all refugees in the country. Less than a quarter was pledged towards this with just $431.1million committed.
Donor governments must urgently release funds critical in supporting refugees with life-saving aid, and long-term support for those who have already fled their country.

Description: Oxfam's Shane Stevenson, Programme manager in Yemen, explains a water system that is supplying water to 4,000 Internally Displaced People (IDPs) at Al-Manjorah IDP camp, in Hajjah governorate, Yemen and also describes a cash distribution. Having fled conflict most IDPs have no way of making an income. There is food in the market but without this cash they would not be able to purchase it and feed their families.
Note: where Shane says this will pump 1 cubic meter per second this is in fact an error. This system will be delivering around 10 litre/second to the settlement.

Description: Water, sanitation and good hygiene practices are fundamental to healthy life. Our collective aim is to ensure every family has affordable and sustainable access to safe water and adequate sanitation. Despite major progress in this ambition over recent years, the poorest and most vulnerable, still suffer with inadequate facilities. And we know that this is a major factor which causes death or poor health, reduces productivity, impacts upon nutrition and undermines personal dignity.
