Today, Mona Relief’s team started providing 5,000 liters per day of clean water in a new point set up in the capital, Sana’a, over the past week.
There are a total of ten clean water points supported by Mona Relief in the capital, Sana’a, where we provide more than 50,000 liters per day to more than 3,000 families.
The clean water project started for the first time in March 2020 with supplying three already-installed tanks with clean water daily each month. In April 2020 Mona Relief installed three other points and since then, have been providing clean water to 1,800 families in the Heziz area of Sanhan district in Sana’a governorate, providing 24 liters per day. And in August 2020 we installed a new water point in Bani al-Harith area of Amanat al-Asimah providing 5,000 liters per day.
Our project continued in 2021, supplying these water tanks with clean water daily.
During August and November 2021, Mona Relief installed three additional water points in Bani al-Harith area in Sana’a city, providing 15,000 liters per day. In total, there are now ten clean water tank points. The total amount of water provided during 2021 is 29, 940,000 liters.
Mona Relief is expecting to increase its intervention in the water project in the next year with more water tank points and more clean water to IDPs and the most vulnerable families in Yemen.
Water is essential for life, health, and human dignity. In extreme situations, there may not be sufficient water available to meet basic needs and in these cases, supplying a level of safe drinking water for survival is of critical importance.
15 million people in Yemen have had their water supplies severely cut, putting them at risk of deadly diseases like cholera and COVID19 because of a fuel crisis and lack of funding from donors. According to WASH Cluster, more millions of people depend on water truck in IDPs hosting sites in Yemen. All IDPs hosting sites suffer from lack of water since the beginning of 2021.
