HALO is committed to providing aid to the people of Nagorno Karabakh however we are able. This was true when Karabakh was combatting the coronavirus last year, and it is true now as the people of Stepanakert have been grappling with a water crisis.
Due to abnormally hot weather this summer, Stepanakert is now experiencing water supply disruptions. The rivers and artesian wells feeding the town have become scarce. After the 2020 war, town’s population has increased significantly as hundreds of Internally Displaced Persons moved to the town.
The local water company has been unable to provide stable water supply to the increased population, and high temperatures of sometimes above 40°C (or 104°F) pose an additional threat. Sanitation and food security are affected, especially for vulnerable displaced populations.
Many households were without water for 7 days when HALO stepped in. Thanks to our supporters, HALO NK has been delivering water to residential areas in town. More than 300 households have benefited from this water delivery. We will continue contributing to water supply and security in Stepanakert as long as we are needed.
We are only able to do this important work because of your support – thank you!
