The Gaza Strip has been facing immense challenges related to water, drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene, which all pose significant health risks to the area’s 2 million residents. These issues also further constrain socioeconomic development.
Today, only about 30 percent of households in Gaza have a daily network supply for limited hours, and 15 percent have access to piped water supply for fewer than 10 days a month.
To help combat this issue, Muslim Aid USA worked towards improving public health and water conservation for 90,000 individuals in targeted schools and health centers. Through this project, MAUSA installed 51 desalination units with a minimum capacity of 5000 liters/day, operated with power generated by solar power cells.
Through this project, we were able to facilitate medical and education facilities with better water supplies.
