This project was to drill a well in Dalle Woreda. The project was completed, with the well drilled to a depth of 33 meters.
The new well will result in: 1. Reduced waterborne disease cases; 2.Medical cost for treating diseases related to unclean water reduced; 3. Personal hygiene and sanitation improved; and 4. Reduced distance to and time to reach water points.
The villagers are quite pleased to have clean, accessible water. All in all, this project was a great success.
We would like to commend the collaborative effort Water Charity, Selam Awassa, and W2W, for executing this much needed project. Through collaboration, we were able to do this work for a fraction of what it would normally cost.
