Millions of people in the Horn of Africa struggle to access safe water. The growing impact of climate change has caused rainy seasons to fail year after year, so severe droughts have become regular in countries like Somalia and Kenya. They’ve cost the lives of thousands of animals, with people barely surviving. ARF’s Water Programme has been working with affected communities in semi-arid areas of Somalia and Eastern Ethiopia to provide clean water to desperate people through various means for 20 years. With the ongoing drought affecting 90% of countries like Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia, the need is even more urgent.Give Clean Water
ARF builds wells and drills boreholes providing groundwater for people and their animals. Groundwater solutions also improve a community’s health and well-being. With clean water readily available, people don’t have to risk consuming surface water which can often be contaminated, causing diarrheal diseases. Before building, we conduct field research with the local community to better understand prevailing conditions and the means and needs of those living there. In this way, we ensure that the water aid we provide is suitable and beneficial in the long term.Give Water Aid
ARF’s Water Programme has improved the lives of thousands across the Horn of Africa, but the escalating impacts of climate change and drought conditions mean more and more natural water resources are drying. To help affected people, we’re working to increase our efforts.
Building a well is a ceaseless charity – Sadaqah Jariyah. This means your one-time donation will ensure hundreds of people will have life-giving water for years and years to come. You can give Sadaqah Jariyah to build a well for yourself or on behalf of a deceased loved one. Donate by yourself or pitch in; the rewards are countless for you.
You can now give Sadaqah Jariyah by helping build a water pump in the drought-affected areas of African communities. Our team installs water pumps using boreholes to clean water from deep below the ground. This way, the people in areas with less or no clean water can easily access it. You can make that happen with your donation.
ARF’s water well system in Falayryaale has benefited six thousand families from the village and surrounding areas and their livestock. Falayryaale’s water well is not only eco-friendly, but it’s also sustainable too. Yaasiin Geesy Mohamed used to have to walk his camels for many miles to the old water source so they could drink and he could collect water for his family’s needs. The water they used was neither clean nor sufficient, and he would be exhausted on his return. The well and water kiosk make it so much easier for him now.Build a Water Well
With ARF, you can help build a solar-powered water well system which can benefit a whole village for just £500, or £20 monthly to contribute to one village’s groundswell project.Give Water Aid
