What Do We Do?
As Yeryüzü Doktorları, we have drilled 184 water wells since 2013 in Chad, Kenya, Congo DC, Niger, Somalia and Afghanistan in order to make access to clean water possible, thus we have enabled approximately 127 thousand people to access clean water. We are continuing our WASH projects, especially in countries where they are much needed.
What Can You Do?
Millions of people in the world lose their health through lack of access to clean water, and they even lose their life. You can afford a water-well cost or you can make smaller donations to support a joint water well project.
In the countries where we currently carry out such works, the cost for a water well in Afghanistan is 2000 dollars, 3600 dollars in Chad and 4300 dollars in Somalia.
Never Forget! Water for us, Life for them!
