Heading to South Sudan

January 28, 2013 in Scott Montgomery, Water by Roots International

In two weeks I will be in South Sudan for a month to set up a new office and accounting systems with my current employer, Kissito Healthcare International. This time of year is the middle of fhe dry season which began a month ago. During dry season the roads will soon become passable throughout South Sudan allowing aid organizations to mobilize humanitarian relief. During the rainy season relief efforts can be reduced to support by air only due to flooding.  Access to clean water will be a huge problem especially in refugee camps. The filters I have brought from the US can produce up to 5,000 liters per day if I can fund and complete the other necessary equipment.
