ACTED Iraq continues to provide emergency WASH response in Salamiyah 1 camp
Over 9,000 residents of Salamiyah 1 camp have now access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. Through water trucking, ACTED has been providing an average of 300 m3 per day of chlorinated water.
In order to ensure long term solutions, ACTED has installed a distribution line, which connects the camp to the main pipeline running from Salamiyah water treatment plant. ACTED constructed seven new elevated tanks of a capacity of 30m3 each. Thanks to this measure, from 23 to 40 liters of waters are available per person per day. ACTED also provided garbage containers to some 800 households, alongside with waste collection activities, as well as hygiene kits and baby kits and hygiene promotion sessions.
