Summary: 

WFP programme officer Ato Awash Mesfin leans on a treadle pump used to draw water from a shallow well for irrigating nearby crops. Since MERET started in Abraha Atsbeha around a decade ago, soil and water management projects have helped replenish the community's depleted groundwater table, making wells and irrigation more affordable, practical and effective.
