STORYLINE:

Through its quick impact project programme, the United Nations peacekeeping mission in South Sudan, UNMISS, is providing a supply of clean water to violence-affected communities across the country.

Residents of Munuki community on the outskirts of capital Juba, relied on water drawn by hand from a well that was often contaminated. With the construction of a new water system, funded by UNMISS, residents now have access to clean water on a turn of a tap.

SOUNDBITE (English) Moustapha Somare, Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for South Sudan:
“I sometimes hear people say UNMISS only protects the civilians in PoC (Protection of Civilians) sites. While we protect nearly 220,000 people in the six PoC sites around the country, I assure you that UNMISS is being robust in protecting civilians across the country.”

While the new water system will provide water to 8000 internally displaced people living in the area and 200 host community households, which have been strained, at times, by the limited access to scarce resources such as water, food, and firewood.

SOUNDBITE (Juba Arabic): Ngyadag Lung Koff, Member of Munuki Community:
“There are no waterborne diseases now because children are bathed using clean water, their cloths washed using clean water, and cooking is done using this same clean water. We thank you all for providing us with this water source and let God bless you for that.”

Munuki is not the only community that will benefit from a new water supply.
UNMISS is working with the South Sudanese Government and non-governmental organizations to provide similar solar powered systems and other vital infrastructure across the country so that displaced people can return to their homes to live safely and with dignity.
