The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we live and interact. Most countries struggle to protect their citizens and economies. In such times, few have the resources to help the people who are in-between countries and ultimately in no man’s land; the refugees.
In 2019 Water for All Italy supported the construction of a borehole in the Nabaka village in South Sudan, giving 2 500 people access to safe and clean water. In 2020 the intervention moved to the rural area of Lalama, providing an additional 2 350 people with access to clean water.
Water scarcity exists all over the world. Water for All Canada is currently funding home installations for water and waste-water systems in a First Nation community in northern Ontario.
This large-scale project targets 19 villages and 2,844 households with an estimated 14,220 direct and 42,660 indirect beneficiaries. In total 26 water points will be established, meant to ensure that at least 70% of the people in the targeted area will receive water of adequate quality.
Over 27 villages are part of this project, with a total population of around 50,000 people. The main aim is to reduce the over-dependency on the monsoon rains by supporting new ways of rain harvesting, facilitating a more long-term water supply both for drinking and agriculture.
