Gaza Water Crisis: Connecting Families to Clean Water

Posted in: ,

In Gaza, many people lack regular access to clean water. According to UNOCHA, 1.3 million people in Gaza are in need of water and sanitation assistance. The Gaza water crisis makes cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene and caring for livestock a huge challenge.

With donations from people like you and our friends at Islamic Relief USA, Anera is helping Gaza families access water by connecting them to updated networks. So far, we’ve connected 600 families to new networks under our current Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) project. By the end of the project, 50,000 people will have better access to the clean water they need to survive.

In this video, Feryal El Dada explains how a new water connection in the El Zarqa neighborhood is helping her family get by.
