Abandoned and forgotten. This Ramadan, the most vulnerable Palestinians are struggling to cope with the blockade.
It has left 97% of water in Gaza undrinkable, leaves homes, clinics, and schools with power cuts of up to 20 hours.
The lack 35% of Gaza’s most fertile land and 85% of its fishing waters are inaccessible because of the blockade. Water is scarce, and when it’s available it’s polluted, and farmers have had to abandon many popular crops which require large amounts of clean water.
This Ramadan, your donations will support those who have been marginalised by the devastating blockade on Gaza. You can provide solar panels in school, so that children can study during power cuts, or connect forgotten families to the wastewater network. You can also help to fight the effects of the water crisis by providing a vulnerable farmer with an aquaponic, water-conserving farm, or by supporting our desalination plant in Rafah.
A water crisis that kills
Some 2.1 million people – the entire population of Gaza – are at risk of waterborne diseases, such as kidney failure, dehydration, and fatal diarrheal disease. The single biggest killer of children in Gaza is drinking contaminated water.
The lack of clean water in Gaza has devastating knock-on effects: it makes it difficult to halt the spread of COVID-19, it forces families to spend an average of 1/3 of their income just on water, and it has made it all but impossible for farmers to make a decent living.
Change starts here. This Ramadan you can be the change that a vulnerable family needs. Help us to provide clean water, a low-water aquaponic farm, solar panels in schools, and install a wastewater network to marginalised families.
