Clean Water for Schools – Education Aid For Palestinians (EAP)
Clean Water for Schools – By 2019, EAP aims to reach more than 300 schools in Gaza Strip and provide more than 300,000 students with clean water.
According to a UN report published in 2012, life in Gaza will be impossible to survive in, in the next seven years due to the decreasing amount of clean drinking water. EAP team in Gaza have already visited 100 schools and conducted research to identify the needs of the community. The team met with students, teachers and people from the public.
Studies also show that approximately 95% of the drinking water in the Gaza Strip fails to meet the standards of the World Health Organization (WHO). UNICEF Reports reveal that more than 26% of diseases in Gaza are caused by polluted water which result in the spread of diarrhea and Blue Child Syndrome. In fact, a correlation between an increase in nitrates in water is proven to result in many diseases such as Cancer and bone fragility.
Every Palestinian has the right to have access to clean drinking water and we need your help to make this dream a reality. With your donation, we can provide safe water to more students and their families.
