Sustainable water sources in Somalia
“The best charity is giving water to drink.” (Ahmad)
Somalia is experiencing a complex and devastating humanitarian crisis. A staggering 2.6 million people have fled their homes due to armed conflict, water shortages and food insecurity. The arid climate, water scarcity and conflict in Somalia have left displaced people extremely vulnerable; 1.5 million people urgently need food.
Help us to provide sustainable water sources to the most vulnerable communities in Somalia. With your help, we will be rehabilitating two boreholes to serve 10,000 displaced people in Baidoa and Mogadishu.
Give the gift of clean water
Human Appeal is dedicated to long-term solutions to water shortages. Water is about much more than quenching thirst; it is what creates jobs, brings life and it helps vulnerable communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
This project will benefit displaced families by reducing the time they spend fetching water, and by providing water troughs for their livestock. We will also rehabilitate 40 toilets and five ablution points, as well as providing hygiene training, ensuring that the project provides safe, sustainable sources of water that can be maintained for years to come.
£15 – provides access to clean drinking water for one displaced person in Mogadishu.
£75 – provides access to clean drinking water for five displaced people in Mogadishu.
£150 – provides access to clean drinking water for ten displaced people in Mogadishu.
This project will benefit 12,950 people
Human Appeal’s work in Somalia
Human Appeal is dedicated to creating sustainable solutions to drought and food insecurity in Somalia. Last year, in the Gedo region, we supported 5,400 people by providing farming families with seeds, tools, training and irrigation pumps in Badera and Luuq. We also rehabilitated 10 wells and 30 latrines in Luuq and Dolow, supporting over 19,000 displaced people who had fled their homes. In Mogadishu we installed 171 latrines to benefit over 6,000 displaced people in the areas of Kahda, Daynile, Baidoa and Dinsoor.
Help displaced families have clean, sustainable water to drink for many years, and multiply your rewards by giving the best of charities.
