Caption : Rumbek city, Water yard renovated by the ICRC. “The water we have been getting from the borehole has not been clean. I know this, because when I left water in a pot overnight, I could see the collected dirt at the bottom of the pot the next morning. The water we get from the water kiosk is not like this. I can also see that my children are better, because we no longer get sick from the water," Rebecca says.

Description : ICRC website, 21.02.2018, Photo Gallery: “The town of Rumbek is facing an unprecedented growth in population with people from the surrounding rural areas pouring in. Cattle raids and inter-clan fighting cause large-scale destruction of property and endanger livelihoods in rural areas. This forces the people to seek the relative safety of the nearby towns. The increase in Rumbek's population puts pressure on existing infrastructure, especially water pumps. For this reason, the ICRC has renovated a water yard designed to provide water to 15,000 people.”
