Promoting Good Hygiene in Burj El Burajneh Refugee Camp
In the southern suburbs of Beirut, Lebanon lies Burj El Barajneh; the most densely populated Palestinian refugee camp in the city and home to more than 17,000 registered refugees; all living within a mere 1 square kilometer area.
Overcrowding, poor economic conditions, and social and political marginalization have made the community in this camp vulnerable to poor sanitation practices and conditions.
In response to these challenges, Anera partnered with UNICEF to do outreach in Burj El Barajneh as part of the Community Based Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion Project.
Congratulations to all Anera’s staff, board, and supporters on winning the Takreem 2018 International Contribution to Arab Society Award! More information about the award is available in our press release.
