Deegaan Bile Company Takes Action to Address Water, Hygiene, and Sanitation Crisis in Somalia

Water scarcity and inadequate sanitation continue to be critical issues affecting millions of people in Somalia. Deegaan Bile Company, a leading organization dedicated to improving the lives of communities, has launched a comprehensive initiative to tackle these challenges and promote better water, hygiene, and sanitation practices across the continent.


Access to clean water is a fundamental human right, yet a staggering 784 million people worldwide lack basic water access. In sub-Saharan Somalia alone, 40% of this figure resides, enduring the consequences of water-related diseases and loss of productivity. Furthermore, women and girls spend an estimated 40 billion hours annually collecting water, impacting their education and overall well-being.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Deegaan Bile Company is committed to providing lasting solutions. Through their advocacy efforts in rural communities, they raise awareness about the importance of good hygiene practices and access to proper sanitation facilities. They aim to empower communities to break free from the vicious cycle of poor health, environmental degradation, and reduced productivity.

To address water quality issues, Deegaan Bile Company distributes water purification tablets and implements water filters to ensure safe drinking water for communities. They also focus on the development and deployment of point-of-use water and sanitation technologies, equipping individuals with the means to access clean water and improve their hygiene practices.

Schools play a vital role in ensuring the well-being of children, yet over 50 million school-aged children in Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania lack access to sanitation services. Deegaan Bile Company aims to change this by constructing public latrines and modernizing existing facilities in schools, promoting a hygienic and healthy learning environment. Additionally, they prioritize the provision of handwashing facilities, as proper hand hygiene is essential in preventing the spread of diseases.

Deegaan Bile Company invites individuals and organizations to join and support their efforts in addressing Somali’s water, hygiene, and sanitation challenges. By working together, we can create lasting change, prevent diseases, and save lives. Together, let’s build a future where every person has access to clean water and improved sanitation, ensuring a healthier and more prosperous somalia.
