Urgent Projects

Essential Need only works with credible and experienced project partners such as UNICEF who undertake projects in communities in urgent need of assistance. Projects can include building wells, rainwater catchments, piped water, gravity fed water tanks and water purification systems depending on the different challenges faced by each community. Currently we are supporting water purification programs for children and communities where the need is greatest, the locations of which are highlighted below.
