Access to water is essential for life, but, in many parts of the world, it is dangerously scarce. The World Health Organization estimates that one out of every eight people in the world does not have access to drinking water.

Without drinking water, people become susceptible to preventable diseases and suffer from treating and recovering from diseases. Oxfam Intermón works with vulnerable communities to improve access to water and build sanitation infrastructure so that families can move out of poverty and lead a healthier life since Oxfam Intermón provides vital water, access to toilets and promotes hygiene practices.


  • Provide drinking water supply while taking into account the minimum standards in access, available quantity, quality and adequate facilities and materials for use.
  • Facilitate access to sanitation by ensuring that the design, type of construction and use of sanitation facilities (latrines, wash areas, drains, etc.) is adequate.
  • Promote health by promoting hygiene practices, distributing utensils when necessary and explaining how to prevent diseases such as cholera, hepatitis, malaria, diarrhea, etc.

Who will benefit?

1,500 people from vulnerable communities in Nigeria, Chad and Niger will receive rehydration treatment

Project objectives

Provide vital water, access to toilets and promote hygiene practices in emergencies, reducing the risk of epidemics and malnutrition.
