About This Project

The Atar Water Project is in need of clean potable water, People in the village are still struggling everyday with major health problems due to the lack of clean drinking water. We can help these people and providing this basic need to the community

Monybany Minyang Dau was born in South Sudan. He grew up in the small Village of Atar until he was about 9 years old. He then voluntarily enlisted to become a child soilder and fight for the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) Soon afterward, Monybany joined thousands of Sudanese as they journeyed for six weeks on foot to reach a safe haven. They fled to a refugee camp in Ethiopia.  This was around the time when a famine devastated Ethiopia adding to the turmoil and destruction already caused by the war. This forced Monybany to leave to find refuge elsewhere.

Now in Canada studying Business, Monybany plans to answer the call for a Better Sudan and help rebuild Sudan. Starting with Atar, he plans to build a well and start the long overdue human effort to help restore dignity, sustainability, and life back into his people. Read More HERE
