Solar-powered pump charges water changes in Ethiopian village

New solar panels, pipes, and tanks deliver water to a town surviving long-term drought.

In 2022, Oxfam made a number of investments to upgrade a well in Gol’Anod, Ethiopia, including installing solar panels as an alternative power source. “Our life started when this organization came to help us,” says shopkeeper Amina Mohamed Abdi. “We want to thank you. We are so grateful."
