East Belesa is a drone prone area and shortage of safe water is critical. “We used to drink form open water source like ponds, and we were walking for 3 to 4 hours per a day for fetching water by donkey. Now our problem is solved. We are getting safe water. Getting clean water is getting free from waterborne debases,” Tigist said.
