In Qaraqosh local inhabitants and IDPs from Mosul (which now together reach the total number of 59.000 people) were given in the last few hours some bottles of water through voluntary channels and UN agencies. The same happened in Karemlesh, where the total number of people is 1.500. But this is not enough.Ten wells of drinkable and clean water are in place, but the two communities have run out of gasoil to pump out the water. The inhabitants themselves have been struggling in the last days trough self taxation in order to ensure distribution of water, but now they are running out of resources and three wells are stopped already.
Official requests have been sent to Institutional Donors, but the response needs to be faster. 60.000 people are without water and, with present weather conditions, the situation gets critical in terms of health and very survival.In order to ensure water distribution to 60.500 people for 15 days and provide some emergency help, we need:
- 10 tank trucks for drinkable water and clean water running for 15 days: 6.750,00 USD
- 5.000 gasoil liters in order to run the wells engines: 4.200,00 USD
- 300 hygien kits for displaced families: 20.000,00 USD
