Many families fled when violence tore their hometowns apart, with some settling in North Kordofan. Already-limited water resources became stretched as the host communities tried to share them with the newcomers, and everyone suffered, so Islamic Relief worked to help over 12,000 people in 25 North Kordofan villages.

We constructed five new water pumps and repaired 20 broken ones, training 50 mechanics – both male and female – to repair them if they break down, ensuring that they last over time. We also held sanitation awareness workshops to make sure that the communities knew how to keep the water clean and safe, and prevent diseases from spreading through the water – we even started hygiene clubs in schools to make sure that children knew exactly how to protect themselves and their health.

47-year-old Koudi Ibrahim Tiya was able to provide for his family as a farmer until they had to escape the fighting and come to El Tamad Harran village. He still wishes they could all go home, but at least they no longer have to walk miles to collect clean water, and he told us “I would like to thank Islamic Relief and Waqf donors for all the support we have received.”

Sudan is a country devastated by both conflict and natural disasters. There is a drastic lack of water and hygiene provision: diseases carried by dirty water can kill, but nearly half the population have no clean water, and only a third can access sanitation facilities.

The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
