T?KA Supported Access to Clean Water in Namibia

Access to clean water is one of the main problems faced in Ohangwena Region, the second most populous region in Namibia. Residents of the region use polluted water accumulated in uncovered wells for their agricultural and animal husbandry activities and daily needs, which leads to the spread of various diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, and polio in the region. Residents need to walk at least 10 km a day to reach the nearest clean water resource.

With the project implemented by TİKA, residents were provided with access to clean water for their daily needs and agricultural and animal husbandry activities. As part of the project, nearly 8.5 km of water pipes were laid underground to deliver water from two active water wells to densely populated areas in Ohangwena Region. In addition, water tanks were built for the storage of clean water.

In his speech at the opening ceremony of the project, Walde Ndevashiya, Governor of Ohangwena, stated that the desired rate of development could not be achieved due to problems with access to water in Ohangwena Region. He thanked TİKA and the Turkish people for their support in this regard.
