In February 2017, famine was declared in parts of South Sudan. This was the first time famine has been declared anywhere in the world in the last six years. Your generous gift of building and restoring wells will give a community the gift of safe water and can contribute towards a new borehole or water system, or toilets for a village community.

Your gift is for wells that are community operated and includes the cost of building, restoring and maintaining the well, water system or toilet.

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya families have fled from violence and persecution in Myanmar. Currently living in makeshift camps in Bangladesh, they urgently need our help.
