Community Profile

A new well has been installed for the Lugor Village in Southern Sudan.

This well will serve over 450 people.

A community member was asked for his comments about the project...

"We the church of Calvary Baptist are very much excited to have the blessings of God by giving to us clean and abundant water.

We are so very happy,
beyond what words can express, for what the Lord has done for us in this
village.  There is no other organization, which has ever drilled a
borehole with so much clean and abundant water in the Limi Boma like
this one in our church.

May the almighty God bless
your works, your lives, and your machines.  This borehole has saved us
from drinking water from streams.  The same borehole will also enable us
build our church building and make some services easier."

-Wonya Athanasius Julius.
(Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church)

Project Type

Abundant water is often right under our feet! Beneath the Earth’s surface, rivers called aquifers flow through layers of sediment and rock, providing a constant supply of safe water. For borehole wells, we drill deep into the earth, allowing us to access this water which is naturally filtered and protected from sources of contamination at the surface level. First, we decide where to drill by surveying the area and determining where aquifers are likely to sit. To reach the underground water, our drill rigs plunge through meters (sometimes even hundreds of meters!) of soil, silt, rock, and more. Once the drill finds water, we build a well platform and attach a hand pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around five gallons of water per minute! Learn more here!
