This project will reach 31,900 conflict and drought-affected individuals in three states in South Sudan through the provision of potable water by drilling new boreholes and/or rehabilitating non-functional ones and nutritional and health support to children under five, pregnant women, lactating mothers, and the elderly. The main objective of the project is to reduce the suffering caused by a lack of clean and safe water, food and nutrition insecurity and poor health for the target population in WAU and Kapoeta.
