Inauguration of a water scheme in Afdera in the Afar Region

On 4th March we inaugurated the water scheme of Adfera, a town of 7200 inhabitants, in the Afar Region. The infrastructure was made by UNICEF thanks to the contribution of the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation in collaboration with the German Cooperation (GIZ) and the local Ethiopian authorities. It will allow the citizens and the surrounding communities to have access to clean water.

To make the infrastructure

  • 2 borholes
  • 2 reservoir – 400 m for the urban area and 25 m for the surrounding communities
  • over 13km of tubes

Before, the source of clean water the beneficiaries had access to through the water trucking were located at 200 km distance
