World Bank Funds Water Project in Southern Sudan

The World Bank signed a USD30 million agreement to help address waterborne diseases and reduce water-related violence in Southern Sudan, Miaraya FM reports. The grant, which was drawn from the Multi-Donor Trust Fund for Southern Sudan, will finance the construction of a water reservoir, health centers, public latrines and the drilling of boreholes in the region. A portion of the money will also support feasibility studies in the towns of Bor, Rumbek, Yambio, Torit, Kwajok, Aweil and Bentiu.
