Water Well Repair Parts Purchase and Delivery
The Nuba Water Project coordinates the purchase and delivery of water well repair parts to the Nuba Mountains. Many wells throughout the Nuba Mountains and Sudan are broken and inoperable, making clean water inaccessible to the people there. By providing and transporting repair parts from Kenya through Juba to the Nuba Mountains, we enable residents to make simple repairs and replacement of parts, thereby helping themselves with access to clean water.
The Nuba Water Project supports the education of Nuba refugees who have fled to South Sudan, Uganda or Kenya and would be unable to attend school otherwise due to the crisis in the Nuba Mountains. This financial support comes in the form of tuition, boarding school fees, books, and living expenses.
Current Scholarship Recipients
Glario, an engineering university student attending school in Kenya, reports to us regularly with information regarding his classes, test scores, and progress. We are also supporting him with a monthly stipend as he has no family to help with his living arrangements. We recently provided him with a personal computer to better allow him to complete his classwork.
Angelo has been accepted for study in agricultural engineering at Catholic University, Wau, South Sudan. We will be supporting him with a monthly stipend, as well as paying his tuition and fees for his education.
Rania will be attending university in Kampala, Uganda. Her course of study will be public/community health. Our support for her will consist of tuition and fees, as she lives with her husband and children and is otherwise self-supporting.
Mary Kuku has also requested our help with a certification program in public health that she is attending in Kampala. We have agreed to assist her on a term by term basis with a $500 grant.
Crisis Relief/Delivery of Medical Supplies
Nuba Water Project has delivered crisis relief supplies, including soap, salt, medicine, and medical supplies to the Nuba Mountains in 2011/12 and 2012/13. Due to the Khartoum government-sponsored attacks on innocent civilians in the Nuba Mountains, we have been unable to work in that area and develop water infrastructure for the past two years. Thus, we have designated donations from our annual fundraiser, the Walk for Sudan, toward crisis relief for those survivors who have fled to nearby caves and to refugee camps across the border into South Sudan.
