praying for water
Thirty years after Ethiopia's devastating famine, water is still as inaccessible as it is precious. While 52 percent of the people have access to improved water, only 10 percent have water piped into their homes. And in rural areas, this figure is as low as 1 percent. Only 24 percent have adequate sanitation.
The implications are extremely broad. In an agriculture-based country, water shortages largely affect not only the country’s economy, but also the basic life of people whose subsistence depends on each season’s crops. Often poor countries like Ethiopia, with high population growth, are the most vulnerable to water stress.
One heart Project is a health promotion charity. Aim to improve the health and wellbeing of people in rural areas, and give them access to improved water Through building water wells in Ethiopia.
