In Ethiopia, WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) programming is bringing sustainable physical and spiritual aid to South Sudanese refugees who fled violence in their home country. In the refugee settlements, finding clean water is an ongoing challenge and many people must take their water from shallow wells, swamps, and rivers. 26 educators from the local Lutheran churches, trained by visiting volunteers who themselves are South Sudanese, use WASH training to talk to the community about sanitation strategies that can help prevent illness. Along with these conversations, each education team works alongside a pastor who shares a devotion, a prayer, and encourages people to keep growing in their faith.
