Many people are running away from the war and going to refugee camps. This is a growing problem, although the refugee camps are there for the refugees to come and have a safe place, the living conditions are terrible. The camps are overcrowded, dirty, and worn down. This video focuses on the nasty living conditions of these camps. Through the economic lens, Sudan needs our help. They can not afford supplies to create more camps. Sudan is poor and has been poor for a very long time, and through an economical stand point, they need our help to provide many things people need to survive.
Meet Salva! That's right, Salva, the main character in the book, A Long Walk to Water. This video explains his entire story, all the way from when he ran away, to when he came up with the idea to bring water to Sudan. Salva was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and made it safely to refugee camps and then eventually to America. He then came up with the non profit organization, Water For Sudan, and it became a huge success. For years he has been giving back to his home village. Through the economic spectrum, the water has been a huge success and has really helped Sudan and the health of Sudan but it is not making Sudan any richer and they still can not afford to do this themselves.
The water crisis in Sudan is growing rapidly, and close behind it is the effort people are putting forth to help them get to it. This video contains people from Sudan explaining their struggle to get to water. Not only do they walk long ways to get the water, the water is dirty and causes many health problems to the people. The CRS is working to provide Sudan with clean and safe drinking water. It is said that every borehole will provide drinking water for 2,500 for at least 50 years. Through an economic lens, the water problem is getting better. With that being said, the only reason the situation is getting better is Sudan has outside sources helping them, without these charities Sudan would not be getting any better.
