WATER SUPPLY FOR MYRIVSKE AND TOMAKIVSKE COMMUNITIES: AMED KHAN VISITS ONE OF THE COMMUNITIES

15.12.2023

In response to an official appeal from the executive committee of Mirove Village Council in the Nikopol district of Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, UWA took immediate action to ensure an adequate supply of quality drinking water for the local population. Initially, assistance was provided to the Myrivska community of the Nikopol district starting from November 13, 2023. Subsequently, a similar request was received from the executive committee of Tomakivska Village Council, prompting us to extend water support to this community as well, starting from November 21.

This project has been made possible through the financial support of the private humanitarian foundation, the Amed Khan Foundation. Amed Khan personally visited the Tomakivska community on December 13 to witness the ongoing process. During his visit, he also met with the head of the Tomakivska community, sampled the water provided to the Ukrainian residents, and ensured the effectiveness of the initiative.

Our water delivery operations cover the following routes:

− Zaporizhzhia to Myrove;

− Zaporizhzhia to Myrove to Topila;

− Zaporizhzhia to Myrove to Nastasivka to Zorya;

− Zaporizhzhia to Tomakivka.

As of November 2023, a total of 120,000 liters of water have been successfully delivered, and in the first part of December, an additional 64,000 liters have already reached their destination. A further 130,000 liters are planned for delivery by the end of the month.

To facilitate this crucial initiative, we have engaged a skilled driver from Zaporizhzhia. Amed Khan had the opportunity to meet with the driver during his visit to ensure a smooth coordination of the water delivery process. This collaborative effort is a testament to the commitment to addressing the urgent water needs of the affected communities in the Nikopol district.

In November 2023, 120,000 liters of water were delivered, and for the first part of December, 64,000 liters have already been delivered. The plan is to deliver an additional 130,000 liters by the end of the month.
