S3. Ep. 4: Water justice for all - but how?

Can you imagine life without water? What lengths would you go to get it?

The people of Somalia are faced with these real questions as they experience droughts, famine and water scarcity right now. In this episode of the Just for a Change podcast, Abdikhayr Mohamed Hussein joins our host, Ntombini, to unpack this very real crisis in East Africa. We talk to him about his work with the Somalian government, as well as local and international organisations for the last 10 years in peace-building and humanitarian assistance.

Why should you listen to this episode? According to the World Wildlife Fund, two-thirds of the world’s population will be facing water shortages in the next few years. It’s a sad reality but Abdikhayr’s work gives us hope in the midst of it all. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode!
