Rehabilitation of Eel Aabey Borehole project

Rehabilitation of EEL ABEY borehole was really needed at Abey village as it is a great opportunity for the community to access clean water. In any village, especially the South West State of Somalia, water is the most basic requirement to sustain life. Moreover, clean water is very crucial for the lives of both rural and urban communities across SWS of Somalia. Many communities are struggling to find clean and safe drinking water as well as for domestic use. By providing clean and safe water to the community clean water, community health will be improved resulting in the decline of the spread of water-borne diseases. Among the borehole rehabilitation needs, the Abey villagers requested contraction of new tank and animal troughs to replace the old ones. EL ABY borehole is now in a strategic location and currently provides water to both human and livestock but with the limited and deteriorating facility. The Borehole is located north-west of Qansaxdheere at a distance of 8km from the centre. The water tank is an old facility developed leaks for long and can no longer store water for the communities. The nearby lakes and dams are often contaminated with pollutants and potentially lethal bacteria that cause illness and infections. So, to make the water palatable and safe to drink it needs to be boiled and goes through an expensive procedure that community members cannot afford. The purpose of Elevator water tank and water kiosk construction is to help the community store clean water to use it later. The clean water will also improve the lives particularly the patient and sick people in ABEY village. Moreover, the borehole will also be a way to prevent the spread of diarrhoea, typhoid and other diseases associated with contaminated water.
