Somalia: Water Well Rehabilitations
- According to the World Bank, only 7% of the rural population in Somalia have access to improved water sources. Drought, conflict, displacement and constant instability have left thousands of families without clean water and waterborne illnesses are rife amongst children.
- There are several regions of Somalia which are struggling with water shortages and it is important to cater to the needs of each community when solving this issue. For example, we could dig new wells or construct boreholes, depending on the area.
- One of the most effective, economic and efficient is to rehabilitate old wells.
- This project will rehabilitate several existing wells, including re-digging the well and lining the walls with concrete.
- Beneficiaries: Over 10,000 people
- Cost: £6,500
