The Kahil Basin

Published : May 3, 2020

This small water basin was built in 2014 before the beginning of the conflict. Unfortunately, due to the lack of means, the work has not been completed properly.

The basin is leaking : each time the villagers try to fill it, the water completely disappears the following week.

The Kahil basin is crucial for the survival of 1 500 people living in the surrounding villages, as the water is dedicated to both agricultural and domestic use. The village of Kahil is also a strategic place since it is one of the most important touristic villages in Yemen.

This basin is also an essential element in our fight against famine. It is an important step toward the development of the Yemeni agricultural sector and it will support the realisation of our other projects, such as the trees planting project and the nurseries!

Thanks to the support from the Swiss commune of Le Grand-Saconnex, Y30 restored the basin from the beginning of September to the end of October 2020.
