drought and water shortage is a worldwide problem. Due to the impact of climate change, Ethiopia, an East African country located in the horn of Africa, has been plagued by drought for a long time. Many families in arid areas travel dozens of kilometers to get water every day. In order to help Ethiopian villagers quickly get rid of poverty and backwardness caused by serious water shortage, XCMG donated funds to build a concrete water cellar for Ethiopia's water shortage areas together with China Poverty Alleviation foundation, so that villagers can effectively collect limited rainwater by using roof, yard and other collection facilities for one year's basic drinking water

a total of 41 water cellars were donated to solve the problem of safe drinking water for more than 4000 villagers and students. One of the water cellars is located in a mountain primary school in Ethiopia, where more than 300 students study in the water scarce campus all year round; 40 Koujiao is distributed in five villages in Amhara state at an altitude of 2800 meters, with remote terrain and rugged mountain roads. The economic source of the village basically depends on the cultivation of crops in yingira. However, due to the extreme poverty of water resources, each family can only use their meager income to buy water from a small town several kilometers away for household and agricultural irrigation. Because people and animals drink a bucket of water together, it often leads to villagers' diarrhea, dysentery and other diseases, and the lack of water makes them difficult to live, primitive production, backward education, and difficult to get rich. Eradicating water shortage is an important means of poverty eradication for local livelihood development

he Daofeng introduced two outstanding advantages of the water cellar project: first, the water cellar project is a blood transfusion project, which not only reduces the time and cost of water intake for farmers, but also provides a guarantee for farmers' economic income generation. Second, the construction of water cellars is aided by non-governmental organizations to mobilize community participation, which has the characteristics of low cost and strong sustainability. Compared with the construction cost of other water facilities, the water cellar has the advantage of low cost, which is especially suitable for low-income people in Africa. At the same time, through the non-governmental organizations to mobilize community participation in the construction assistance mode, the beneficiary farmers are required to invest in labor, which further reduces the construction cost of the water cellar. At the same time, the water cellar can continuously alleviate the problem of water shortage in arid areas. Each water cellar built with the assistance of XCMG can store water for a family of five for 50 years

mils awon, director of the Irrigation Department of the Ethiopian Ministry of agriculture, said that since China established a comprehensive strategic partnership with Ethiopia, Ethiopia has made great progress in infrastructure, education, culture and other fields. What moved him was that more and more Chinese enterprises, such as XCMG group, did not forget to give back to the society and fully practice the enterprise society while operating the enterprise. He also said that as a non-governmental organization, the China foundation for poverty alleviation has gradually played an important role in Ethiopia's people's livelihood and community development. He hopes that the African water cellar project can benefit more residents in arid areas and bring them water and health. He also hopes that Chinese enterprises and non-governmental organizations can continue to work together to help Ethiopia develop people's livelihood

abebayehu tarekchen is one of the beneficiaries of the water cellar project. At 6 a.m. every day, abebayehu would hang buckets and buckets of water at home on camels and go to the community pool 15 kilometers away to carry water. This round trip would take four hours. When the dry season comes every year, the water in the community pool also dries up. He will go to the town to buy water, and it will cost 1800 Ethiopian birr (about 500 yuan) to buy water every year, which is a big expense for the not wealthy family. Moreover, the water sanitation of the community pool is not guaranteed, which is easy to cause diseases such as diarrhea and dysentery, especially children. This is a serious health hazard in Ethiopian rural areas where local medical conditions are not developed

the water cellar has been built, and abebayehu and his family are very happy to wipe the peeling of the test surface with a warm cloth before writing. He said that now he is looking forward to the rainy season and can use the new water cellar. Instead of running around to get water every day, you can spend your time and energy on farming and bring a better life to your family. The health of family members can also get the certificate of milk fiber tensile test machine

the successful completion of the Ethiopian water cellar project adds a bright color to the "folk to folk" diplomatic model
