Water for South Sudan


Water for South Sudan, Inc.

Drills water wells in Southern Sudan, one of the world’s poorest regions. As of May 2013, Water for Sudan has successfully drilled 217 wells bringing clean, fresh water to tens of thousands of people, transforming life in their villages.


Salva Dut is president of Water for South Sudan, Inc. He is one of the “Lost Boys of Sudan” who fled the war-torn southern regions of Sudan, Africa’s largest country by size of territory. He is now a US citizen. He then supervises the organization’s annual drilling operations in Southern Sudan during the region’s dry season which is the only time drilling can take place.

First Presbyterian Church paid for the drilling of a well in the village of Abilnyang in 2008.
