Shiidle Village Shallow well project
Shiidle is a small village within Hudur town. The villagers live next to Hudur airstrip which makes it difficult to access water, especially on busy flight days as they are banned from crossing over. They walk for 1.5 KM to access the main rig to fetch water for domestic use.
The identified site in the village is next to Hudur primary school which has 215 pupils (95 girls and 120 boys). The only shallow well in the school compound cannot be used due to its high salinity levels which makes them buy water on a daily basis. There are 13 water management committee members; which consists of 2 women, 11 men and 2 persons living with disability. ACF and SomRep personnel (Somalia resilience Program) visited the site and did a hydrological survey in January. The shallow well is much needed especially for women who would love so much to have a kitchen garden in our backyard. It will reduce distance to water they had a near water source closer to their homes. The new shallow well for Shiidle villages costs 37,724 USD. SomRep and ACF granted 19,862 USD for the shallow well establishment. Shiidle village community raised $4,046 to bring water to the villages closer and to the school. Shaqodoon mobilized south west state communities to raised funds for the crowd funding projects. Shaqodoon with project committees raised contributions from communities in Hudur and other towns in Somalia.
ACF completed the digging of waney shallow well. Thanks to SomRep partners and the EU as the donor of the crowding funding project, Shiidle village residents and near areas have clean and sufficient water for consumption and irrigation of their farms.
