Families Relief is proud to announce that our clean water programme in Gaza is now live in over 500+ home.
The above 2 tonne water cylinder has been installed in the local villages, allowing over 50+ households access to clean drinking water.
"It was almost impossible for us to receive clean until Families Relief provide our village with a water filtration tank" Hasan (Gaza)
Why is there so little safe water?
Gaza is home to 2 million people — half of them children.
Only five percent of Gaza’s water supply comes from neighbouring countries. Gaza’s coastal aquifer is the primary water source. But over-extraction is rapidly depleting it because people have no other choice. Worse, pollution and an influx of seawater mean that only four percent of the aquifer water is fit to drink. The rest must be purified and desalinated to make it drinkable.
