Our team in Kalma Camp in Darfur had so many great ideas related to water…Luckily we have the water committee to lean on!
Although water is readily available in Kalma, getting the water day-in and day-out can still be a big challenge for some in the community. People living with a disability and the elderly often struggle to get large, heavy water jugs back to their homes.
We wanted to lighten the load a bit – with some wheelbarrows. The wheelbarrows will be stored near the water points. They’ll be available for anyone to more easily wheel their water back to their homes, or for a neighbor to fetch water for them.
“We’ve done the best we can to make water available all the time at the water points,” said Abbas, the South Darfur Program Manager. “This will ensure our most vulnerable residents will also have water whenever they need it.”
