Drought, poverty, and rapid population growth are among the main causes of water shortages.  Today, there are millions of people who have to walk many kilometres to get water from a spring outside their homes. The problem of access to clean water is still serious, especially in Asia and Africa. Water well aid in Africa : 

The joint report of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) reveals the bitter truths. The report, entitled “Drinking Water, Sanitation and Hygiene”, draws attention to the fact that around 2 billion 200 million people worldwide still do not have access to safe drinking water. According to the report, the number of people who cannot wash their hands with soap and water at home is 3 billion. Another remarkable point in the report is the lack of a clean water source, which 785 million people can reach on foot within half an hour.

Clean water and poor hygiene conditions mean that diseases such as diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, hepatitis A, and typhoid are easily spread. In fact, the joint report published by UNICEF and the WHO stresses that 297,000 children under the age of 5 die each year from diarrhoeal diseases.

Enabling people in Africa and Asia to access clean water

Water well aid in Africa

WEFA has built water wells in areas where access to clean water is insufficient due to drought and geographical conditions and has provided clean water to more than 1 million people.

The needs of the people in the region for clean drinking and service water are met by wells drilled in areas where water is scarce. While the difficulties in agriculture and livestock farming are reduced, efforts will be made to create jobs in these regions.

Between 2006 and 2019, 4,520 wells in 19 countries have been provided to people without clean drinking water. WEFA will continue its well work without interruption in 2020.
