Successive droughts have resulted in more than 2 million inhabitants of Madagascar requiring humanitarian aid.
The primary goal of this project is to ensure access to water and provide food support to the most affected population in the south of the country.
As part of the project we will build 10 wells and 6 latrines. Over the course of four months we will be running a nutritional aid programme at schools which assumes providing 570 children with lunch every day. In co-operation with local organisations and communities PAH will be running a programme of tree planting and distributing energy-efficient heating furnaces.
Additional, as part of this project we will evaluate whether or not sand dams are the right solution to the water shortage problem in the Antanimora region where the long-term drought has been the most troublesome.
As a result, aid will be provided in total to approximately 13 000 individuals.
