Chad suffers more than other countries from the effects of climate change, drought and water shortage. Where precious water is available, it is often dirty and contaminated. SWISSAID has supported the population for years with well construction. We go to inspect the site.
First no rain, then too much: no harvest for two years in Abtouyour Province, south-eastern Chad. Farmers escaped famine thanks to a well that helped them cultivate vegetable gardens. SWISSAID intends to provide further support for this method of securing food supplies, with more well construction planned.
