Invest 5 Shares to Build a Borehole in Somalia
Somalia, renowned for its deep-rooted history and vibrant culture, is currently facing one of its most challenging water crises. Consecutive droughts have left the nation thirsty, triggering a series of issues, from dwindling food supplies to a drop in agricultural activities.
Somalia's Water Crisis
Water shortage in Somalia transcends mere dry terrains. It's synonymous with the escalating hunger that's tightening its grip on the country. With farming activities halted due to water scarcity, food deficits are widespread. The gravity of the situation has propelled Somalia to the pinnacle of the International Rescue Committee’s Emergency Watch list. The culprits? A lethal blend of drought and the repercussions of prolonged conflict, culminating in a dire food emergency.
For multiple seasons in a row, Somalia has awaited rains in vain. Projections for mid-2023 indicate that an alarming 8 million individuals, nearly half of Somalia's inhabitants, will confront extreme food insecurity. The ominous threat of an imminent famine looms large.
MAA Responds To The Crisis
We've embarked on a mission to build a Solar-Powered Borehole in Gumeys village, Jowhar, Somalia. This borehole isn't merely a water source; it symbolises a lifeline, poised to deliver clean water to 36,000 primary beneficiaries.
What's included in the borehole construction?
Hydro geological and geophysical studies
Borehole Drilling (estimated depth: 150m-200m)
Solar Panels and Inverter
Well Cap, Storage, and Generator Room
Elevated Concrete water tank (25m3)
3 Animal Troughs
Water Distribution points including 10 tap dispencary and donkey-cart filling station.
