[Juba, South Sudan, TCT] - The Israeli Ambassador to South Sudan, Hanan Goder, expressed his country’s willingness to boost South Sudan’s water management system to provide access to safe and clean drinking water in the capital. The Israeli envoy also reiterated Jerusalem’s keenness to bolster bilateral ties with Africa’s young nation.

Speaking at a water management workshop , yesterday at Aaron Hotel in Juba, Ambassador Goder said Juba would benefit from Israeli methods of water management.

The diplomat further emphasized that the two countries will continue to discuss and further promote their cooperation. “We have gone a very long way since Abraham, the father of faith in the Bible, dug seven wells.” Said Goder referencing the biblical story.

Ambassador Goder invited the Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation, Hon. Sophia Pal Gai, to visit Israel adding that the two nations have shared historic mutual relations for years.

“I am inviting the Water minister to visit Israel for [an exposure visit and] feasibility study so that she learns our system and be able to return and share the experience from Israeli modern water system,” he said.

Hon. Gai on her part, acknowledged Israel’s great support to improve South Sudan’s safe water drinking system, but also underscored challenges facing the young country’s water institution. 

“South Sudan has a lot of waters, but lack of technical know-how is hindering the nation from delivering clean and safe drinking to the population,” Sophia stated.

In South Sudan, lack of access to improved water and sanitation and poor hygiene practices have been the principal causes of water-related diseases, such as cholera. Increasing access to safe drinking water, will improve living conditions of many South Sudanese people in the capital.

The Israeli government through its Aid Development organization has been supporting several developmental projects in the country. Currently, twenty South Sudanese students are undertaking extensive training on modern farming methods in Israel.
