Stories STORIES


Mary's Story:


Chaplain Golyan's Story

“My name is Mary Kiden and I was born in Girimini. I have three children with my late husband, who passed away during the war against the Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army in Nimule in 2009.

During the First Sudanese Civil War my children and I ran to exile, settling in a refugee camp in Uganda. We were able to return after the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement in 2005.

The water problem in our village has been bad for a long time. People drink water out of hand dug wells and streams which turn milky during the rainy season. Because of this, both children and adults get sick from water borne diseases such as dysentery, vomiting, worms and Typhoid. The new well is a rescue for the people of Girimini. Thanks be to God. May he pour blessings upon the donor.“

 

Sula's Story:

 
Mary's Story

“My name is Sula Emmanuel and I am a 17 year old student in primary 6. Because of my fathers death in the army and my mothers poor condition, my sister and I lack school fees and have to study one year on and off. My father was a soldier of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army even when we were in exile in Kali refugee settlement in Uganda.

The situation of water remains bad since returning from exile. In the camps we drank clean water but here we drink dirty water from streams and open wells. People get sick from diarrhea, typhoid, eye infection, fungus and worms such as guardia, hookworm, bilharzias and ascaries.

The village of Girimini suffers mainly because of the condition of water. Other companies come and test but then never return. God has done great work by sending Water Harvest International to drill this borehole for our community. God bless the work of both the donor and WHI.”
