Ethiopia Water Update

by | Apr 9, 2022

Your incredible response to the emergency water need in Ethiopia has enabled us to purchase all of the materials needed for the water reservoirs and rain collection systems for ten schools. These schools are located in the hardest-hit areas.

The immediate impact will reach over 6,000 children! And the rain water collection system will help with long-term sustainability. Your generous support will enable children to continue to attend school, instead of searching for water everyday. The reservoirs will also be a source of safe, clean water, which will keep children healthy and help them avoid contaminated water sources.

We are overjoyed by the love and support you have shown for these Ethiopian communities who are suffering due to the severe drought. We will keep you informed as the work continues.

Take a moment to watch this quick update from Ethiopia with Sata Shiferaw, Ethiopian Director for PATH International.
