Drought in east Africa: 7.5 litres of water 

per person per day

Drought in east Africa means each person has an average of 7.5 litres of water a day – that’s about 2.5% of the US average.

After nearly 11 months without a drop of rain, all of the traditional water sources in Waridaad village, Somaliland, dried up. Oxfam partners Havoyoco have been trucking in clean water every day. The water is pumped into these community tanks, from where each family queues up to fill their jerrycans.
Ibrahim Harir Deria, who co-ordinates Havoyoco’s water trucking, says,”We are suffering from consecutive drought. Last year was okay, but before that there was a drought. It is getting more common. The lack of pasture is the father of many things – it causes disease and malnutrition.
“There are four trucking centres in the village, each serving 140 households – so 560 families in total. Each household gets 45 litres of water per day – about 7.5 litres per person.”
Did you catch that? 7.5 litres per person.
To put this in perspective: estimates of water usage at home per day for the average person in the US range from 300 to 466 litres per day. 50 to 100 litres of water per person per day are considered needed to ensure the most basic needs.
Oxfam is helping communities look for more sustainable sources of water, by drilling boreholes, developing motorised water programs and improving traditional water harvesting systems. In the driest and worst affected areas we have been trucking in emergency water supplies.
