Esther is Home at Last

For the past few weeks, we’ve been getting to know some of the South Sudanese people who are finally able to return to their homes. Just like you and I, they want nothing more than to be at home.

Today there is peace in South Sudan. But peace must be fueled by hope. Hope that comes from clean water, schools, clinics with affordable medicines, food planted and harvested in your own field.

Because of the generosity of our donors, we were able to rehabilitate our rigs and equip our crews so we can continue bringing water and hope to sustain peace in 2019.  

With the continued support of people like you, now and through the next year, we can make sure the people of South Sudan have access to clean water to build on the hope they feel now.

People like Mama Esther Gaba.

Mama Esther left her village when it was invaded and burned by rebels. She fled with her children to the “safety” of the bush. But her unwavering spirit and family are back home now.

While in South Sudan a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of celebrating with Mama Esther and her entire village as we repaired their well. Since our celebration with Esther, we have repaired another 15 wells! We will not stop till everyone drinks clean water in South Sudan.

That’s why we’re aiming to raise $140,000 by Dec. 31 through our year-end campaign, Home At Last. We are more than halfway there!

You can help restore hope and rebuild lives in South Sudan by making your year-end gift to Water is Basic today. There are thousands of mothers like Esther and they need clean water now more than ever. With your help, we can bring it to them.

Till they are all home at last,
