Tombura-Yambio, 19 March, 2023 / 8:54 pm (ACI Africa).
Beneficiaries of a “safe and clean drinking water” project being realized in a partnership between the Sudan Relief Fund (SRF) and South Sudan’s the Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio (CDTY) have expressed their appreciation for the initiative.
“I am happy with the initiative because it will help local communities to avoid drinking contaminated water,” Emmanuel Dungu told ACI Africa in a March 14 interview.
The 40-year-old resident of Our Lady of Fatima Parish of CDTY where the initiative was launched expressed his gratitude to SRF, saying, “We thank the organization for coming up with the initiative to help our people, especially during this period that our community wants clean water.”
The Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CODEP), the social wing of CDTY, is coordinating the implementation of the water initiative.
In a March 7 interview with ACI Africa, CODEP Director, Fr. Charles Mbikoyo, described the initiative that he said is being coordinated from his office in Tombura Deanery as a “safe and clean drinking water” project.
