WATER EMERGENCY EAST REGION OF TIGRAY, ETHIOPIA
TARGET: Districts of Gantafeshum, Gulomekada, Saesie Tsaedaemba and Irob
Following a war that started in Tigray, Ethiopia, on November 4th 2020, 4.500.000 displaced people live in extreme poverty conditions at risk of famine at today’s date. Women, children, and disabled people are the most vulnerable victims of the situation.
Following the indicated priorities and relying on donation already received, the Butterfly foundation already decided to finance the immediate purchasing of the following items:
- 3 water tanks (10.000 litres capacity) to be installed in Adigrat town. The relevant sites will be at the schools of Finote Birahn, Agazi e Maydagame, where thousands of people, primarily women, children, aged, and disabled people, are presently living.
- 1.200 water jerry cans
Duly considered that water is the absolute priority for the survival of the people, this project intends to immediately provide for the rehabilitation of 18 water wells that have been purposely damaged during the war to give a life expectancy to some 8.000 people.
The rehabilitation of these water well will include the supply of a completely new pump, the erection of new fencing to protect the water well, water quality tests, and a new WATSA committee’s training.
Foreseen cost per water well: €. 3.300
We hope that considering the urgency of this project, many of our donors may decide to finance the rehabilitation of a well for an average number of 400 beneficiaries.
