T?KA Supports Access to Clean Water in Namibia

Access to clean water is one of the main problems faced in the Ohangwena Region, the second most populous region in Namibia. Residents of the area use the polluted water collected in open wells for farming and livestock activities and their daily needs, which leads to the spread of various diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, and polio in the region. Residents have to walk at least 10 km a day to reach the nearest clean water source.

With the project implemented by TİKA, residents are given access to clean water for daily needs and agricultural and livestock 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 of Ohangwena County. In addition, water tanks were also built to accommodate clean water.

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