          The people of Malou live outside the embrace of Sudanese culture. The majority suffer from Leprosy. Leprosy is a curable disease, but not in this part of the world where medical care is a luxury. Untreated, those with leprosy suffer numbness, debilitating muscles stiffness and eventual blindness. It’s difficult to carry out essential daily tasks like fetching water and tending crops. Yet the stigma Leprosy carries can be far more damaging. In Malou, 50 families have been touched by the disease. All of them were banned from the local water well. The next was 11 kilometres away. When they should have been in school, most children were hauling jerry cans of water for their families. For this village of outcasts, it was the only option. When we first heard of Malou, we imagined the worst—a dismal place without happiness or hope. In fact, Malou is a joyful community. They sing, dance, tell stories, laugh. They are not ashamed of their illness, but proud to have overcome such staggering challenges. For many, this is the only place they have ever belonged. In October 2011, the Obakki Foundation drilled a water well. Now there is one less hardship to bear in Malou, one more reason to rejoice. www.obakki.com Music: Call and Answer by Jordan Klassen http://jordanklassen.bandcamp.com/

              It took a woman 10 heavy bucket pulls to fill a jerry can with water that would likely make her family sick. When we arrived in Pancui, the village well was a large open hole in the dry red earth. It was a breeding ground for malaria and guinea worm, and a death trap for livestock. Unclean and unsafe, for 1600 villagers it was the only option. Ground water in this part of the world retreats, and the village men were forced to dig deeper and deeper in search of it as the months wore on. Still, more than half a year could pass without a drop. Children were sent to other villages to fetch water for their families. School would simply have to wait. When water came at last, it wasn’t safe to drink. It took a woman 10 heavy bucket pulls to fill her family’s jerry can with water that would likely make them sick. What should have been a life-giving resource had become for Pancui a source of sorrow. We drilled a borehole in Pancui in March 2012 that provides the village with a steady source of clean water. Already the villagers are healthier. The livestock are safe. The children can go to school again. Where there is clean water to drink, joy flows. www.obakki.com Music: The Sun by Aidan Knight http://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/the-sun/id355923168?i=355923180&uo=4
