International Medical Corps brings clean water to rural villages in Samburu District, one of the most arid regions of Kenya.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
International Medical Corps makes clean water available to nearly 50,000 people in Samburu District, an area plagued by water shortages. Recent droughts have intensified already-existing water shortages, a crisis that now impacts 3.5 million Kenyans living in arid and semi-arid areas of the country. Worldwide, approximately 20 percent of the global population does not have access to clean drinking water.
How will this project solve this problem?
International Medical Corps is implementing a comprehensive program designed to increase access to safe water and sanitation facilities, as well as promote hygiene awareness, for people residing in the Baragoi and Nyiro divisions of Samburu district.
Potential Long Term Impact
International Medical Corps is constructing dams, building latrines for towns and primary schools, training village health and sanitation and water committees how to improve public health through safe drinking water and hygiene.
