From our staff

Mahamat Dirde Zene, Public Health Engineering Assistant

 Oxfam's focus in Chad is on helping people meet their basic needs - so that they can then focus on building a better future for themselves and their families. It's a poor country, people have suffered a lot here as a result of recent wars, and our geographical location - in the Sahel desert - makes life tough. By enabling people to have clean water, to feel safe and to have a good food supply, we can help them move forward. In my role, I monitor and control water points and train communities in water management. I'm so proud of our work rebuilding wells and hand pumps, and restocking people's livestock.
