In certain regions throughout the country, these numbers are a harsh reality for the people of Chad:
- 1 in 3 people do not have access to clean water. (UNICEF, 2018)
- 1.3 million children require humanitarian assistance. (UNICEF, 2018)
Islamic Relief USA has recently worked to reduce water-related mortality in Sila, eastern Chad by providing communities with clean drinking water. Deep water wells were constructed, and water management committees were formed to train community members on basic water management in order to ensure long-term success.
