  As the 2016 drilling season comes to a close, Water For South Sudan continues to make a significant impact in the lives of hundreds of thousands of South Sudanese, with a new total of 275 wells drilled since 2005. As of March, 16 villages received new wells and hygiene education ( the hygiene team looks to develop a pilot sanitation project) and 20 wells repaired with new concrete platforms and fencing. The 2015 Well Evaluation Survey helped shape the 2016 Planning & Drilling Operation Improvements.  
As more wells are drilled in South Sudan, the total number of people served by each well has begun to decrease. This is an important quality of life issue. Earlier wells may have served 3,000 people, now new wells, this past season, average under 1,000 people per well. As more people have access to more wells, they also can begin to use water for more uses, including gardening and farming.Thank you for your generous support and continued commitment of this worthy World Gardening project in South Sudan.  

In 2015, FGCNYS gave $15,310.12 for a new well
