The project aims to restore water and sanitation access in a particularly poor area of the Gaza Strip.
In collaboration with our local partner PHG, we have build a 4,5 km long water-sewage system and connected to it 166 homes. We had the opportunity to expand our operation by connecting to the sewage system the local Aber Al Zuhour kindergarten, which houses 130 children between 3 and 5 years, of which 71 boys and 52 girls. Previously to our intervention, flooding due to an inadequate sewage system often occurred. The hydraulic works and infrastructure project were successfully completed in June 2014, followed by 6 workshops in order to raise awareness on sanitation practices and the management and cleanliness of toilets, 2 of which dedicated to men, 2 to women and 2 to children. Unfortunately, only 5 of the 6 planned workshops were conducted, due to the degeneration of conflict and military interventions.
