Water and Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) PROGRAMME
Fifty per cent of the population in South Sudan lacks access to safe water.To survive, families may be forced to drink dirty water, putting them at risk of waterborne diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea, which remain leading causes of death among children in South Sudan. The situation is further aggravated by poor hygiene practices. Just 10 percent of the population have access to improved sanitation.
To improve access to safe clean water , UNIDOR has constructed 20 boreholes in various locations in the unity state, and is rehabilitating 10 boreholes previously drilled by other humanitarian actors. Our intervention has improved access to water for safe 30,000 households in hard to reach areas of Unity State.
