Extension of Badhaadhe Life-Saving Emergency Water Provision (Somalia)


Titre : Extension of Badhaadhe Life-Saving Emergency Water Provision (Somalia)

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : CHF-DMA-0489-163ER

Durée : 18-07-2011 // 20-08-2011

The current water crisis in Badhaadhe is linked to the collapse of the only borehole in the area on 27 March 2011. Both AFREC and ICRC water engineers were in agreement that the only option was to drill another borehole as the collapsed one was beyond repair. ICRC which had drilled the borehole indicated that it will drill a new one at the same site to function with the rest of the infrastructure build by AFREC with funding from HRF/OCHA. In the meantime, AFREC obtained support from the CHF emergency reserve to provide water to 10,800 affected people using a voucher system. As emergency water provision started, it was hoped that the Gu rains would reverse the water crisis but this has not been the case. The situation actually worsened as the rains failed though the emergency water vouchers went a long way in ameliorating the situation. There are fears that water-related disease burden which has to some extent been under control will get out of hand as soon as the emergency water provision ends at the beginning of July 2011. This project is proposed to extend water provision using voucher system for another month.
