Rehabilitate a Water Well in Yemen
18 million people in Yemen also need water, sanitation and hygiene assistance. Drinking dirty water is one of the most common causes of death in the developing world despite being one of the most preventable. Action For Humanity's water well rehabilitation project aims to provide more than 5,600 people with critical access to safe drinking water in the Tuban district, Hrran village, through the rehabilitation of a major water source and increasing sustainability through the provision of solar power. The project will also address gaps in WASH through social behaviour change and community mobilisation. The need has been shared by the community and local authorities with AFH staff and was highlighted in recent partners’ reports.
The Hrran water source has been consistently reducing its output due to the lack of maintenance and fuel, and it requires a new water pump and solar power to function properly and meet people’s needs. The increased numbers of IDPs added to the problem and addressing this issue is becoming more critical by the day.
