Présentation
This Emergency WASH project will improve access to safe water for 1,850 households (approx, 11,100 people) affected by droughts and Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD) in Belet Weyne and Maxaas districts of Hiran region in Somalia by undertaking the following interventions : DKH will support emergency access to safe water through distribution of water vouchers that will enable 600 households to collect water from designated water kiosks for the upcoming 4 months while drought conditions are expected to intensify. Besides, DKH will conduct emergency repair and protection of shallow wells with addition of animal troughs to meet the urgent needs of 1,250 households for safe water. Distribution of water treatment supplies at the households and chlorination of common sources will also be an integral part of this intervention. DKH will complement the water vouchers and distribution of treatment supplies with hygiene awareness at household level. Beneficiaries will be sensitized on hygienic handling and safe storage of water to prevent potential avenues for contamination. DKH will also do repair of existing latrines in health facilities providing treatment to persons affected by the AWD/cholera outbreak in target locations. Combined, hygiene awareness and rehabilitation of sanitation facilities will reduce the risk of AWD while improving household capacity in preventing water borne diseases
