Madagascar is the second-largest island nation in the world after Indonesia. Of its 30 million inhabitants, more than 25 million live on less than $2 a day.

Madagascar is struggling with the negative effects of climate change, which is affecting the southern part of the island the hardest. The last six years have seen endless drought. The rainy season is becoming shorter and more unpredictable. What is certain is cyclones, which over just a few days can cause damage which is then repaired over months and years.

Residents of the southern part of the island have to walk many kilometers to fetch enough water for their basic needs: drinking and cooking. However, there is not enough water to water the vegetable gardens, which are the main source of food for local communities. In the absence of a harvest, often the only food becomes the fruits of cacti growing in the bush. This has a negative impact on many aspects of life – children, for example, miss lessons because they spend hours scavenging for food for themselves and their families.

Nearly half a million children in southern Madagascar are severely malnourished, and 2.5 million are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Its delivery is extremely challenging, not only because of the scale of the needs, but also because of access to the places where these needs exist. In the southern regions of the island, transportation infrastructure is virtually non-existent.

According to CARE, the humanitarian crisis in Madagascar is one of the most forgotten crises.

PHA began working in Madagascar in 2022. We are building wells, coordinating reforestation programs in deforested areas and a school feeding program. We also conduct other activities for local communities. In 2023, PHA will also implement the construction of the first sand dam.


Project duration: 1st March 2023 – 31st December 2023
Location: Andalatanosy municipality (Androy region), Madagascar
Donor: PAH’s own funds
Partner: Africa Sand Dam Foundation (ASDF)

In the Androy region, which is plagued by very scarce rainfalls and recurrent droughts, the first sand dam is being erected. This solution will ensure access to water collected in the rainy season during the dry season. The dam will be built by the residents themselves, with PAH and ASDF providing expertise and financing.

In total, ca. 3,000 people will benefit from the dam…read more


Project duration: 1st November 2022 – 15th August 2023
Location: 1. Antanimora Sud (Androy region); 2. Ankililoake (Atsimo-Andrefanaregion ), Madagascar
Donor: PAH’s own funds

As part of the project, we are building wells for the community of the Grand Sud macroregion (Androy and Atsimo-Andrefana regions) in Madagascar, which is most severely affected by drought. We also provide seeds and seedlings as well as trainings in modern agricultural techniques. Furthermore, we finance hot meals for students at schools. In addition, we provide residents with solar and energy-saving stoves.

In total, the aid will reach 20,000 people…read more
