“During the rains, the haffir filled up. Many years we have water shortages but we do not think this will dry up before the rains come again," says Halima. As rainfall patterns become more erratic, haffirs, which collect and filter the rain, will help to ensure that women do not carry an unfair burden of climate change. Before this haffir was rehabilitated, women would have to collect water from neighbouring villages, often 10-12km away. The drudgery of this essential task has been drastically reduced. With access to this water source, what once took a whole day can now be completed in an hour. Some 700 families benefit from this technology, which represents the main water source in the area.
