The HEWASA II Project has got two objectives: to assist the victims of continuing insecurity and climatic hazards in Somalia and to increase access to sustainable safe water and improved sanitation and hygiene.
South-Central Somalia has been under a protracted state of conflict for over 18 years now. This situation has led to lack of a central governing authority and the result is that communities have been left to find their own means of tackling societal issues.
With the lack of a central government, issues like drought, flooding, internal displacement of persons, poor infrastructure among other hardships continue to afflict communities in Somalia. Over the years, livelihoods of both resident and internally displaced persons/communities have been adversely affected as a result of these protracted wars, drought and flooding especially in 2007 and 2008.
To alleviate human suffering and vulnerability during these crises, ADRA through funding from the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO) is currently implementing the HEWASA II Project in Bay and Hiran Regions of South Central Somalia. As mentioned above, the principle objective of the Project is to assist the victims of continuing insecurity and climatic hazards in South Central Somalia specifically by increasing access to sustainable safe water and improved sanitation and hygiene conditions.
