Storm Damaged Roofs
As a new school year gets underway here in our towns and cities, our thoughts turn once again, to a village and students less fortunate: the village of Wunlang, in South Sudan, and the students who continue to flourish in Wunlang School.
Thanks to your support, Wunlang not only constructed the village school in 2007, but hundreds of students, girls and boys, have graduated from eighth grade, and prepared themselves for high school and for opportunities beyond the classroom. Wunlang is now a destination for families who want to settle near a good school.
Village Help for South Sudan made a commitment to Wunlang at the outset not just to help them with the school’s construction, but also with on-going supplies and maintenance of the facility. Earlier this year, a severe storm damaged the roofs of two of the school’s structures, a classroom block and a supply building. With Wunlang School full to capacity, we need to get the roof repaired and the students back in their classrooms.
We must act now to restore the learning that is so vital to the village but also to take advantage of good weather during the dry season when repairs can be done. Please consider making a donation to our school-year commencement campaign that will focus this year on Wunlang School repairs.
