Caption : Rumbek city. “We have rehabilitated the broken water kiosks and added a solar panel system so the running cost of the system is reduced. Without this, some have to walk long distances to get water and we have seen long queues of people waiting to fetch water in this area. With this water yard, the quality of the water is also better," Akhol Henry Kamcill, an ICRC water engineer in Rumbek, 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.”
