 Let’s save millions who suffer from inaccessibility of water, hygiene & sanitation!

By:-Esubalew Dires

Can we really think of existence of life without water? No, absolutely not. People often say “water is life!” This is to mean that people, flora & fauna species/lives/ are not able to survive without water. Accessing to safe water is a human right; however, the problem is still a serious threat in the globe in general and Ethiopia in particular. Though there is no vivid figure, Amhara Region is among the lowest in water supply, hygiene & sanitation services in Ethiopia. According to WaterAid:

  • Four in ten people don't have clean water. That's almost 60.5 million people.
  • Over 92 million people don't have a decent toilet. Just one in ten people do.
  • Over 8,500 children under 5 die each year from diarrhoea. Caused by dirty water and poor toilets. 

To contribute its share, ORDA has been implementing John’s Rig WASH Project funded by Welthungerhilfe & Viva con Agua to supply water, hygiene and sanitation activities in five districts of East Gojjam Zone of Amhara Region, namely- Sinan, Gozamen, Debre Elias, Machakel and Aneded. Those districts are selected based on their low water supply, sanitation coverage, and their good potential of underground water.
