Water Relief for Disadvantaged Communities

Summary

Water Relief project aims to provide free water supply of clean and drinkable water at home to vulnerable and low income families during lockdown. Water security at home means each family member will meet the Water Survival Threshold defined by SPHERE Humanitarian Response as the daily minimum water requirement of 15-20L per person. This will also boost good handwashing practices, personal hygiene and sanitation at home which are the most effective means to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus.

Challenge

More than 5,500 low income families who rely on daily wage income were greatly affected due to work suspension during COVID-19 lockdown. No work means lessening the financial capacity to afford and to meet family's basic needs. Financial obligations on basic needs and essential services like water utility are additional burdened to them. Life without water access during this COVID-19 crisis will brought serious health and food contamination issue which could lead to sickness to vulnerable

Solution

The water relief subsidy will provide 7 cubic meter of free water supply at home which will secure the water daily requirement of 15L per person and it will lessen the financial burden of low income families. The project will intently preserve their dignity and human right to water access during emergency and crisis situations.

Long-Term Impact

The project will enable more than 5,500 families to remain healthy, safe and economically stable while staying at home, which give them greater chance to recover and adapt faster to "new normal" situations after the COVID-19 crisis. The project also aims to strengthen our goal to encourage proper water usage and to develop the habit of hand washing with soap as the most affordable and effective means to prevent the spread of virus.
