SAFI DROPS

SafiDrops

1 oz bottle

One drop of Safi cleans one gallon of water for drinking and cleaning.  This 1 oz bottle costs just over $3 and can provide clean water for a family of six for almost one month.

We currently send in small shipments with people traveling to Sudan.  Safi has been delivered to Juba, Yida Refugee Camp, Equatoria, and the Nuba Mountains where it is being used very effectively.

For the second year in a row, we have used funds from the Walk for Sudan to purchase and deliver relief supplies to the people struggling to survive in the Nuba Mountains.  Many thanks to Samaritan’s Purse for helping with transport to the border of N/S Sudan.

A water-catchment dam in the remote village of Bilo  is now able to collect rainwater during the rainy season so the women don’t have to walk up to three hours a day in search of water.

WATER, MEDICINE, SOAP & SALT

CRISIS IN THE NUBA MOUNTAINS:  Currently unable to work in the Nuba Mountains due to government-sponsored attacks on innocent civilians, Nuba Water Project is working to provide water, medicine, salt, and soap to survivors who have fled to nearby caves and to refugee camps across the border in South Sudan.  See the article below for all the details.

Walk for Sudan $10,000 Well-Spent

George Tuto is safely back in Denver after a three-month saga in Africa.  His unfailing determination to help his people in the Nuba Mountains aided him in overcoming a multitude of obstacles and dangerous situations to deliver almost $20,000 of medicine, medical supplies, soap, and salt to areas where daily bombing still occurs.  This was the first shipment of emergency supplies to get to the region where it is desperately needed.Nuba Water Project provided $10,000 from the 2011 Walk for Sudan to supplement money raised by Bishop Andudu, Diocese of Kadugli, through the Episcopal Church.  George purchased 15 bags of salt, five boxes of soap, and 152 boxes of medical supplies, including bandages, antibiotics, gloves, medicine for malaria and diarrhea, and more.After many delays, George was able to fly with the supplies by Samaritan’s Purse flight to Yida, a refugee camp on the border between North and South Sudan.  From there, he hired a truck and began a risky three-hour journey into the Nuba Mountains where he found people desperate for help, many of them living in caves to avoid injury from bombs.  Supplies were delivered to three main clinics over the next few days; from there, they will be distributed to outlying areas.
Mark your calendars for the 2012 Walk for Sudan on Sunday, October 21st at 1:00.  We hope to raise twice as much money for our next project, which will be announced in a future message.
