AFD came to the rescue when the people needed help.

Action for Development, in partnership with Norwegian Church Aid, has made it possible to provide potable water to the residents of Aynalem and Pelpa kebeles in the South Ari district of the South Omo zone. Due to the lack of rain in consecutive years, the drought that occurred in the area not only prevented the residents from getting potable water; but also caused them to be exposed to water-borne diseases. This has exposed the residents to many social, economic, and related complex problems. The potable water project enables the residents to get clean and sufficient water near them and saves the community from suffering and expenses by protecting them from water-borne diseases that used to occur in the past. It has greatly contributed to preventing students from dropping out of school due to health issues.
