Summary

Peace Winds Japan (PWJ), in collaboration with local partners, is providing access to safe water to the people affected by Cyclone Idai. Through the constructed water supply systems and wells, victims who have been forced to resettle or are in the process of rebuilding their homes, can have their daily water needs.

Challenge

Floods and high winds from Cyclone Idai destroyed thousands of buildings including homes, schools, and clinics causing an estimated USD 770 million in damages. As a result, an estimated 400,000 victims were displaced from their homes. Moving into the recovery phase, the victims need access to safe water to meet their daily needs.

Solution

PWJ and our local partners will provide solar-powered water supply systems including tube wells, solar panels, electric pumps, water tanks, and tap stands at locations where access to safe water is needed most. Additionally, PWJ is establishing water management committees to oversee the maintenance of these facilities and to promote hygiene education among the beneficiaries.

Long-Term Impact

Post-disaster recovery is a long and arduous journey for most victims. The current water infrastructure cannot support the needs of the thousands of victims in need of access to safe water. The solar-powered water supply systems and hand wells will provide for the needs of these victims - they shouldn't have to worry about safe water in the midst of rebuilding their lives. The water management committees oversee the maintenance of their own supply systems, thus ensuring sustainability.
