ACTNews, SOMALIA Based on the United Nations have announced that the water crisis in Africa these past few years is the worst in the past decades. As a response, Global Wakaf-ACT constructed another Waqf Well from the benefactors amid the extreme water crisis in Somalia.

Firdaus Guritno from ACT’s Global Humanity Response said that the lack of water supply in Afgoi, Somalia has caused difficulty in accessing clean water to surrounding residents. Moreover, the drought-prone area also worsens the situation.

As a response, Global Wakaf-ACT endeavors to provide clean water access such as by constructing a Waqf Well in Afgoi Village.

“Previously, before the well was constructed, residents had to walk long distances to fetch water. Sometimes, the water source is drying so they had to use the available unfit water,” Firdaus explained, Tuesday (11/16/2021).

The constructed Waqf Well has eased people who arduously access clean water. Now, the Waqf Well in Afgoi can benefit at least 700 residents from 300 families.[]
