Due to the severity of the ongoing drought, access to safe drinking water has significantly deteriorated across Somalia. The drought has aggravated the water situation in areas where water sources had already suffered years of neglect and poor maintenance.
Under CARE’s drought response, a total of 404,001 men, women and children have received support under Emergency WASH Program. CARE is providing support under WASH by construction of water tanks, rehabilitation of shallow wells, awareness and promotion of health and hygiene campaigns and through distribution of hygiene kits.
