Walking along the pedestrian and road walkway zones across the capital city during the rainy season it is obvious that there is a lack of drainage and correct waste disposal services. Although a minimal concern during dry season, the situation is amplified during rains in the July – October periods and becomes more frequent the further away from the city one travels.
The lack of drainage and correct water run-off leads often to flooding, pooling of water and contamination with the mix of dry waste. The result is frequent outbreaks of cholera, lack of drinking water and severe flooding causing destruction of homes and sanitation facilities.
One of the missions’ of Engineers without Borders Sudan as a non-profit organisation is to provide simple engineering solutions in the form of materials, manpower and skills to fix some of the health issued faced from lack of sanitation, clean drinking water and electrification.
One solar powered 3″ submersible electrical pump for example costs $2680 , and correctly drilled, casted and constructed underground can provide drinking water for 100 people per day – an astonishing and beautiful achievement.
