South Sudan has about 7 million people (two thirds (2/3) of the population) in critical condition, including 4 million refugees, divided equally between internal refugees (of which 85% are women and children) and immigrants from neighboring countries.
In 2019 Water for All supported the construction of a borehole in the Nabaka village, giving 2 500 people access to safe and clean water. In 2020 the intervention moved to the rural area of Lalama, providing 2 350 people with access to clean water.
