Clean water for displaced families

By Josina Shields-Stromsness | MECA Program Director

Filling up clean water for displaced families
Filling up clean water for displaced families

During these unprecedented Israeli attacks on Gaza, your donations are continuing to provide safe, clean drinking water to displaced families. Clean water was already in short supply in Gaza but with so much infrastructure damaged and around 85% of the population displaced, children and families are struggling to get enough clean water to survive. 

Here's how our work has shifted during this emergency to continue to do what we can to ensure this fundamental right for children and families in Gaza:

  • Some of our Maia units continue to work with solar power or fuel provided by UNRWA
  • We have bought and distributed water bottles when they are available. This month we received in-kind donations of water from our partner the World Central Kitchen to distribute to displaced families in Rafah. 
  • We have worked with local companies that have large solar-powered water purification units to deliver trucks of clean water to families in Rafah, Khan Younis and Gaza city. To date we have provided 703,012 gallons of clean drinking water.
  • We have built a new solar-powered water purification unit in Mawasi where tens of thousands of families are seeking shelter 

With your support, we will continue this critical work.
