11 water points, providing safe drinking water to a displaced population which had risen to about 18,500 people in March 2020. Irene, responsible for one of the water points, makes sure that drinking water is distributed equitably among the inhabitants and that hygiene conditions promoted by the AAH teams are respected.
"The people of the site care about the proper maintenance of water points, we know that misuse is a vector of diseases, especially for children.”"
Through this system, thanks to community engagement and financial support from partners such as OFDA, AAH manages to supply one of CAR’s largest IDPs camps at a rate of 12.5 litres per day per person. Still under the international standards of 15 litres per day per person, and taking into account the likely sustainable settlement of people on the site, this support needs to be strengthened. So, AAH continues to look for additional funds to allow safe water acess to at least 18 000 people.
