Water Pump 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.
Salera Village was lucky to have 15 bore holes…but 13 of them were inoperable. A $5,000 grant allowed them to fix six of the broken wells in the summer of 2019 and there are enough pipes left to fix more.
Nuba Water Project provides Safi Drops to people in the Nuba Mountains. One drop of Safi in a gallon of dirty pond water will kill all the bacteria in 30 minutes, thereby proving clean water for people who have to gather water from lakes and ponds.
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.
Support has also been provided to secondary schools in the Nuba Mountains.
University Scholarship Recipients
Glario, an engineering university student attending school in Kenya, has overcome many obstacles. 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 is studying agriculture at Martyr’s University near Kampala, Uganda. He reports to us regularly with information regarding his classes, test scores, and progress. He is already planning for the use of his education upon return to his village in the Nuba Mountains. We support him with a monthly stipend, in addition to paying his tuition and fees for his education.
Manal is studying Journalism and Communication in Kenya, with the purpose of returning to the Nuba Mountains and promoting girl child education.
Morsal intends to start medical school in Uganda in 2020 to become a surgeon. He currently works in the one hospital in the Nuba Mtns and is focused on returning to his home country to open another medical facility so people don’t have to walk so far for medical help.
Rania attended university in Kampala, Uganda. Her degree in public/community health has allowed her to make an impact helping her people in Khartoum and in the Nuba Mountains. She was selected in the summer of 2019 to present at a Doctors without Borders conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
Mary Kuku earned her Master’s Degree in Community Health in Kampala. She now has traveled three times into the Nuba Mtns to teach workshops on clean water/sanitation. More workshops are planned.
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.
