Rehabilitation of Al-Kishkieh water station – Amal Organization | Iraq

Rehabilitation of Al-Kishkieh water station

The project aims to provide the population of Kishkiyeh, a community of 70,000 located in Abu Kamal district in the eastern countryside of Deir-ez-Zor, with quality-controlled and sufficient drinking water to cover for their essential needs of drinking water and hygiene, considering the recommendation of the World Health Organization, setting the minimum daily amount of water for 30-40 daily share per capita. In addition, improved water supply will enable the target population to apply basic hygiene precautions in the context of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover. Overall, the measure will contribute to a general improvement of the living conditions of the population of Kishkiyeh if successfully implemented, as it will take away from them the financial and logistical burden of using water trucking services.

This intervention aims to enable community participation in managing the natural resources (water) by establishing a water users association (WUA). The WUA will consist of 9 members, of which 2 are supposed to be women and 2 have the technical knowledge to ensure the engineering side of the system. None of the 9 will have connections to local authorities.
