Access to drinking water for displaced people in South Sudan

The customers of Promofarma start a new fundraising campaign in order to collaborate with ACNUR/UNHCR.

More than a third of the 12 million citizens of South Sudan are displaced, and more than a half of the population is affected by the crisis in the country.

Promofarma_LOGOThe customers of Promofarma have already raised the necessary funds so that Médicos del Mundo can improve the delivery room facilities in Bolivia and reduce maternal and child mortality in the country (you can remember the project here). Now, they start a new social challenge with the main aim of ensure that displace people from South Sudan have access to drinking water.

Vertic300All the funds collected will go to ACNUR. The political and security situation in the country remains unstable and armed conflicts persist, as well as assassinations, kidnappings, rapes and a general state of anarchy. UNHCR is assisting people who are in a situation of vulnerability due to the ongoing emergency and responding to basic needs.

The organization is working to extend the water supply network, rehabilitating at least 50% of the existing water points and protecting 70% of the water supply facilities.

The main purpose of Promofarma is to raise up to €3,000. With this amount, 500 refugees will benefit from drinking water systems for one year.

We remind you that you can get more information about this campaign and check the fundraising status HERE.
