International organization IsraAID presents interactive map “HodyDoVody” to Mykolaiv

Published on 20.12.2023

In Mykolaiv, the international non-governmental humanitarian organization IsraAID handed over an interactive map “HodyDoVody” to the city on behalf of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) humanitarian cluster.

“The international non-governmental humanitarian organization IsraAID, on behalf of the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) humanitarian cluster, has officially handed over the Walk to Water interactive map to Mykolaiv. The signing of the relevant package of documents with the participation of the mayor of the city Oleksandr Sienkevych and representatives of IsraAID took place in Mykolaiv on December 19, 2023,” the press service said.

They also noted that after the destruction of the Dnipro-Mykolaiv main water supply system in 2022, water points became a source of drinking water for citizens and IDPs. They were organized by humanitarian organizations, utilities and businesses.

In the summer of 2023, there was a request to create a special tool that would accumulate data on the work of the stations. IsraAID coordinated the development of such a service.

The map contains information on 225 water points, including 12 equipped with water purification systems and dispensers from IsraAID. For all points in the user mode, access to the exact address of the water distribution point, information about the type of point, time and days of operation, the ability to create a route to the point online and leave feedback is provided.

The press service added that the following data is available in the password-protected administrative mode: responsible organization, location of the point, contractor, amount of water dispensed, time of filter replacement and barrel cleaning. Administrators at each station have access to the number of reviews and the time when they were left by users.

As reported, Mykolaiv is looking for partners for the possible reopening of the Zhovtnevyi reservoir, which was emptied in 2008.
