Fundraise to Fill a Water Truck

Share:

The Horn of Africa is in the midst of the worst drought in 40 years. Wells, cisterns, and natural earth dams have dried up. Drilling bore holes is no longer a possibility since the water table is so low. 

In Somaliland in particular, pastoral communities who depend on water, not only for themselves but for their animals, are suffering as their livestock die.  And in times of extreme heat, they have no idea where their next cup of water is coming from, much less where their livestock will drink or feed.

“Before [the drought], our animals fed us; now we have to feed them, they are dying, and we are next.”

This is why Plan International, along with our local partners, are providing emergency water trucking to communities most affected by the drought. It is the only solution in an area where no rain has left the ground cracked and dry.  

A water truck fills a cistern in Somaliland
A water truck provided by Plan International and our local partner, Taakulo, fills a cistern in a village in the Maroodi-Jeeh Region of Somaliland.

Two water trucks a week are needed to sustain a community like Garbis, a village in the Maroodi-Jeeh Region of Somaliland, through the drought – this adds up to over 100 water trucks a year for just one community.  

This is why Plan International, along with our local partners, are providing emergency water trucking to communities most affected by the drought. It is the only solution in an area where no rain has left the ground cracked and dry.  

But we need your help to keep the water trucks coming.

You can mobilise your family and friends to take action by launching your own fundraiser! It only takes a few minutes to set one up. But the impact can change lives.
