The newly formed Sudans are currently in very vulnerable states - with fighting between the Republic of the Sudan and the Republic of South Sudan over unresolved issues from the Comprehensive Peace Agreement of 2005. Access and fundraising are limited. In the mean time, HS4S's founder has been working in Djibouti and - as a side line - started a project with the Afar villagers, the Djiboutian Armed Forces, and the US military Civil Affairs teams to build an Eco-Dome in the mountains. The dome is particularly suitable for the extremely harsh climate in an area with little water and no electricity or roads.
