ARC has successfully carried out the drilling of 7 surface wells in the Lower and Middle Shabelle, as well as Hiran regions of Somalia. Each well is constructed with a durable concrete structure and equipped with a manual pump (bucket) and a trough for livestock and animal watering.
These wells play a vital role in meeting the water requirements of the local communities, benefiting over 550 households. They are part of ARC’s comprehensive WASH program, implemented across different regions of the Horn of Africa. The program encompasses activities such as well drilling, installation of water storage facilities, water pumps, and machines.
Funded by the international ALRAHMA Societies of Kuwait, the program aims to mitigate the risks associated with water scarcity during drought seasons. These conditions often hinder impoverished individuals in remote arid areas from accessing a sufficient supply of clean and safe water.
