Access to clean water is not just a basic human right; it’s a fundamental cornerstone for unlocking families true potential and ensuring a healthier, more prosperous future for all.” UNICEF
The Yerer Korke well in Debre Zeit is part of a two-year water project to combat waterborne illnesses, accounting for 52% of families’ health issues in the area. ENA’s water team plans to host a community celebration for the clean well at the end of 2024. The water well features a hilltop reservoir and a generator, enabling community members to access water efficiently and conveniently for themselves and their cattle. ENA’s water team worked diligently with representatives from the Water Bureau to train local representatives on properly maintaining their wells. Each water point, equipped with 4−6 faucets, will serve over 7,000 people in 25 villages.
