West Bank, Gaza
Thousands of people experienced water shortages in the southern West Bank as a result of unusually low rainfall and soaring prices in 2009. Action Against Hunger improved access to clean water and sanitation for families spending up to 30% of their income to buy water, improving economic security and curbing the spread of water-borne illness for over 12,500 people.
ACF constructed and rehabilitated pipelines and water points; built and rehabilitated cisterns for people to collect rainwater; increased water access for pastoralists and their animals to help protect livelihoods; conducted educational sessions for women and students on efficient water usage and safe hygiene practices; provided training for engineers and technicians from six municipalities on water management, maintenance, and system design; and built shelters for vulnerable Bedouin families living in remote areas to help protect against the harsh climate and decrease environmental health risks.
