Caption : Kidal Region, Assikad. Borehole and water tower built and installed by the ICRC. By ensuring direct access to water, these installations also improve security for communities who won't have to walk long distances to fetch water anymore, and will thus be less exposed to dangers such as cattle rustling, abductions, armed attacks or explosive devices.

Description : The borehole is powered by solar panels. Solar energy helps preserve the quality of life of those communities, who are already affected by the combined effects of conflict and climate change.
"This borehole is a hope of survival for the whole community. We are less exposed to danger as the water source is very close to us now," says a resident.
