In Yemen, the urgent need for water continues to grow. Natural disasters, food insecurity, epidemic outbreaks, and the escalation of the conflict has increased the need for water sanitation and hygiene.
Thousands of water wells and infrastructure need rehabilitation to provide clean water to displaced families and communities in hard-to-reach locations. Syria Relief, on request of individual donors, will dig a water well in Shabwah governorate, Yemen.
This area suffers from low levels of potable drinking water, high percentage of chloride in the underground water and shortage of electricity which leads to a fall in level of available water. The extracted water from the well will be channeled to 5,000 beneficiaries.
