WASH

For people affected by manmade and natural crisis, access to clean water and appropriate sanitation facilities are amongst the most urgent of all needs. Taking this into account EOTC-DICAC/RRAD plays vital WASH role in assisting refugee in different parts of Ethiopia.

Safe drinking-water, sanitation and hygiene are crucial to human health and well-being. Safe WASH is not only a prerequisite to health, but contributes to livelihoods, school attendance and dignity and helps to create resilient communities living in healthy environments.

Access to clean water is also deeply linked to poverty. Clean water and a clean environment shouldn’t be a luxury. Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world,

especially for women and girls who spend endless hours fetching water over long distances.

For people affected by manmade and natural disaster, access to clean water and appropriate sanitation facilities are amongst the most urgent of all needs. We have to make safe water and sanitation available to everyone, regardless of whom they are or where they live. Taking this into account EOTC-DICAC /RRAD plays vital WASH role in assisting refugee and host communities in different parts of Ethiopia.
