OWDA’S Water tankering updates

Organization Welfare and Development in Action (OWDA) is currently conducting water tankering emergency interventions in three different districts of the Somali region where was highly affected by the recent drought. These districts are Bokh, Galadi and Hershin.

The report compiled by our field staff pertaining to these water tankering activities stipulated that OWDA has conducted water tankering activity in last forty days to an estimate population of 52,013 according to the Districts’ Disaster prevention and preparedness officers.

The road infrastructures of these districts are very poor and moreover the nearest water sources of some of the kebeles are quite very far from the beneficiaries, a reason somewhat complicated the smooth running of the intervention even though the organization is sparing no effort to continuously provide the services uninterrupted.
