WATER WELL SUPPORT TO THE ARID LANDS OF NIGER


The drought in Niger due to the desert climate and the drinking water crisis, drags the agricultural lands to very negative conditions. Thousands of families are starving due to drought and rising food prices, and hundreds of thousands of children are sickened by chronic malnutrition. The wheat that the people of the region can obtain from the fields in Niger can only sustain an average family for a few days.

The lack of clean water in the villages of Niger, which has a food-water crisis every year and ranks last among 188 countries in the United Nations' Human Development Index, causes various diseases. In particular, diseases such as cholera, typhoid fever, dysentery and pneumonia cause the death of many children in the country, while increasing the number of inpatients in adults.

In all this context, International Blue Crescent Foundation (IBC), following the assessments carried out in the region, has activated 17 water wells in the past weeks, with the support of IDRF, for 20 villages such as Boulkass, Bonzare, Fadifoga, Louggal, Gueria-Boboye, Bangoubanda to reach fertile agricultural lands.

International Blue Crescent Foundation (IBC) will continue to develop new projects to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged communities in the region, after completing the needs analysis of Niger, which is always threatened with different humanitarian crises due to seasonal conditions.
