Description: In 2011 famine was declared in Somalia. Now, in 2017, famine once again is looming over the drought-struck country. Not only are children suffering from malnutrition but this has resulted in an outbreak of cholera and acute diarrhea. As of today, 22,000 cases have been reported and Baidoa, Somalia, is one of the epicentres. There is no clean water for drinking or sanitation, which means diseases can quickly spread. We’re on the ground delivering life-saving supplies, support and helping nurses like Amina boost morale of the patients. Together with partners we’re aiming to reach 1.5 million people with clean water and sanitation services in 2017.

Description: A joint project of UNICEF and EU Humanitarian Aid Operations helped in several communities affected by El Niño phenomenon in Paraguay.
The project improved water connections, sanitation facilities, and installed new public water points. With the help of EU funding, Caacupemi School in Asuncion, the capital of Paraguay, has been providing clean water to its students for 15 years; the school has taps with clean running water, flushing toilets, and safe drinking water. Having access to water means that children are able to focus on their studies and fulfill their right to a proper education.

Description: Since December 22 Damascus has been faced with crippling water shortages affecting some 5.5 million people. UNRWA estimates about 80 per cent of the Palestine refugees in Syria residing in and around Damascus are among those affected. In response, the UNRWA Department of Health is closely monitoring for outbreaks of water-borne diseases and promoting preventive health awareness in the Agency’s health centres and collective shelters housing displaced refugees. UNRWA is also deploying a water tanker every day to its health centres, installations and the collective shelters it manages.
