With the crisis entering its ninth year and showing no signs of abating despite recent efforts, 10.7 million people continue to be in urgent need of life-saving assistance across north-east Nigeria, far-north Cameroon, Western Chad and south-east Niger. Nearly 2.4 million people are displaced with fresh waves of violence and human rights abuses resulting in thousands arriving into congested sites on a weekly basis.
IAS Chad programme has been operating in the Eastern Region of Chad (Goz Beida) and the Central Region of Guera. Guera Region has proved to be one of the most challenging places to drill for water. With a positive borehole rate currently standing at around 30%, the drilling turns to be very costly. One would easily decide to leave the area and go to easier areas. But what about the people? The need for potable water in Guera remains high despite continued intervention to improve the situation.
