Covid-19: Nearly 80k people in Togo benefited from the government’s free water initiative

(Togo First) - A total of 78,000 people benefited from the government’s free water access measure initiated under the Covid-19 response in Togo. 

The figure was revealed by the country’s water utility, Société Togolaise des Eaux (TdE). The number is nearly 22% more than the 66,000 beneficiaries it expected. The increase was among others due to new connections recorded over the period concerned. 

In addition to household connections, access to water at public standpipes (2,249 of them across the country) was also free. The latter cost XOF91 million monthly. 

Overall, the government spent around XOF214 million to provide free water to populations. This is up 17.5% compared to the amount authorities had planned (XOF182 million).
