Gaza suffers from a constant water shortage during the summer. The majority of its sources are contaminated and polluted. Around 2 million citizens are left with no clean water for drinking and bathing. Rahma WorldWide, the best charity for Gaza is doing everything it can to provide relief for the alarming water crisis in this country.
Even though the residents buy private water for cooking, it is still of substandard quality. Hence, the water crisis is something that these people have suffered for years.
The water crisis in Gaza is becoming more dangerous as the day goes by. Over 1/3 of the population is cut off from the sanitation system and do not have a clean water drinking source, leading to an increase in kidney problems and the infant mortality rate is at 12% because of poor water sources.
In addition to this, only 16% of the essential infrastructure to build water treatment plants reaches Gaza. The Israeli blockade further slows down the transit of such equipment. Therefore, it is difficult to improve the water and sanitation situation in the country.
The desalination and sewage treatment plans require constant power to run. However, given the situation, even this task seems impossible.
Hence, all the facts paint a troublesome picture in Gaza. The population needs around 56 billion gallons of water every year. With this in mind, Rahma World Wide and other best charities in America have begun relief measures for the Gazan people.
We have launched our clean water distribution project at the Al-Mughraqa area in the middle of the Gaza strip. Rahma Worldwide calls upon your support as well. You can also lend a helping hand with these relief measures.
