We carry out activities aimed at providing safe water to people affected by armed conflicts and natural disasters on the territories of South-Central Somalia. We restore existing and construct new water and sanitary infrastructure. We will build and restore 15 shallow wells in order to provide access to safe drinking water. In addition, local communities will be trained in monitoring water quality and maintaining the water infrastructure. Our activities also include construction of latrines from materials resistant to strong winds and floods. The project’s beneficiaries will also be the recipients of activities related to the promotion of hygiene and distribution of hygiene kits carried out by a specially-trained team. During the seasons of elevated flood/drought risk, our team will also be carrying out activities designed to prevent epidemics. As a result, aid will be provided to 23 748 people.
