ZOA WASH Project Dolo Ado Ethiopia
Somali Region, Dolo Addo Woreda.
The poor performances or even total failure of consecutive rain seasons have resulted in severe drought conditions in most of Ethiopia Somali region. Moreover, the current long dry season of Jilal has worsened and contributed to the loss of livelihoods for most of pastoral people of the region including Dollo Addo Woreda of Liben Zone.
ZOA has provided assistance to thousands of people affected by prolonged drought in Dollo Addo Woreda of Somali Region through water provision and livestock based emergency intervention such as livestock feed and veterinary care. To ensure proper storage and provision of safe water ZOA distributed water collection containers (jerry cans) as well as water purification chemicals. Furthermore, families were provided with temporary shelter and their children were able to continue their education.
