SPA Returns to Africa

SPA first started working with the people of Eastern Equitorial South Sudan in 2015. Back for another fire season, the SPA team arrived in Lopit, South Sudan early February and stayed for 3 weeks. The people of Lopit are very comfortable with fire as it is essential to their lifestyle. They’ll start grass fires to scare out field rats and hunt them, to clear land, and to prepare land for planting. With lack of equipment and water when a fire gets out of control in Lopit it can be devastating. SPA firefighters sprung into action to assist and burn out the village edge.
