Somalia is in devastation as it experiences its worst drought in 40 years. Three failed rainy seasons have compounded the effects of the drought resulting in 6.4 million, approximately 40 percent of the population, requiring emergency life-saving WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) assistance.
Out of those, 3.5 million need safe drinking water, 5.1 million require sanitation services, and 6.4 million need hygiene supplies. Approximately, 6,058,603 people lack access to safe water and proper sanitation services, making them highly vulnerable to diseases like cholera.
As Somalis battle with horrid conditions, endangering the lives of millions, our teams are responding immediately. Muslim Hands Somalia is undertaking WASH projects to rural communities affected by the droughts. The project's goal is to support approximately 28,680 people in vulnerable populations with limited or no access to essential WASH services.
Under WASH interventions, Muslim Hands Somalia:• Established a deep water well • Constructed a concrete water tank with a storage capacity of 24,000 liters of water • Provided a new generator to Kabhanley village in Baletweyne district of Hiran region, an area which requires immediate assistance.
Help the people of Somalia so we can implement other community-specific projects.
