South Sudan: Rebuilding Water & Sanitation Infrastructure

In March 2016, Polish Humanitarian Action (PAH) started another water, sanitation and hygiene project, funded by EU Humanitarian Aid. Since 2012, EU funds have supported PAH’s mobile teams in alleviating human suffering. Over the last year, PAH’s emergency response team has been answering the needs of communities in 11 locations across the country, in Jonglei, Unity, Upper Nile and Central Equatoria States. PAH has prioritised the most vulnerable areas, left out by the humanitarian sector due to challenges in operations and logistics.

With the support of EU humanitarian funding, we are building and renovating the water and sanitation infrastructure, distributing hygiene kits, and promoting proper hygiene techniques. Our help reaches the most vulnerable people – especially women and children. We work together with our beneficiaries by training community members to fix and maintain infrastructure, and to conduct hygiene promotion training.
