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)

We're just getting started, check back soon!



Project Type

Borehole and Hand Pump

Girls and women walk long distances for water when safe water is very often right under their feet! Underground rivers, called aquifers, often contain a constant supply of safe water – but you have to get to it. No matter what machine or piece of equipment is used, all drilling is aiming for a borehole that reaches into an aquifer. If the aquifer has water - and after the well is developed - we are able to pull water to the surface utilizing a hand-pump. If all goes as planned, the community is left with a safe, closed water source providing around 5 gallons of water a minute through a hand-pump.
