Sioux Chief sponsors safe drinking water programs in Sudan

The company believes in the value of World Plumbing Day.

Earlier this week in honor of World Plumbing Day, March 11th, Sioux Chief sponsored several programs, including borehole drilling, repair and hygiene training for those in need in Sudan. The company believes in the value of  World Plumbing Day, an annual international event initiated by the World Plumbing Council, to celebrate the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society.

Since 2006, the nonprofit organization, Persecution Project Foundation, PPF, has operated a Safe Water campaign which has drilled 80 wells for refugees and internally displaced persons in Sudan. Additionally, PPF's Safe Water Program funds water purification systems, solar-powered pumps, health and sanitation training and emergency borehole repairs.

“We believe the best way to show our support for World Plumbing Day is to provide safe, clean drinking water to children and families from the Nuba Mountains who have lost everything but their dignity and who suffer from lack of safe, clean water sources,” said Sioux Chief CFO Dominic Ismert.

“We encourage others to help the suffering communities in Sudan and join us in sponsoring this important initiative by giving to Persecution Project Foundation's Safe Water Program.”
