Driven by conflict, lack of access to basic services and up to four consecutive failed rainy seasons in some areas, humanitarian needs have risen to unprecedented levels.
Continuing displaced and new arrivals in the area created huge demands for safe water, sanitation, and other essential lifesaving items.
Our water, sanitation and hygiene project will look to help over 10,000 individuals by improving the access to safe drinking water by rehabilitating 2 boreholes in Mogadishu which will serve approximately 10,000 IDPs and vulnerable host communities in the target areas.
Similarly, the project will contribute to the reduction of waterborne and communicable diseases by rehabilitating 27 toilets and 5 ablution points and drainages in mosques and madrassas in the target areas of Baidoa in Bay and Mogadishu in Banadir regions respectively where 660 people will benefit. Hygiene awareness training will be provided for the mosques and madrassas caretakers.
