‘Water so bad, even animals refuse the water’
Gaza’s only source of ground water is contaminated by sewage, chemicals and seawater. It is so bad, that even animals would refuse to drink the water.
Right now, more than 95% of water is unfit for use and this number is predicted to reach 100% by 2020. If it does, the damage would be irreversible.
1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza face severe health risks every day as they consume water polluted with nitrates and chloride. One quarter of all childhood and infant illnesses in Gaza is caused by waterborne diseases.
This is a humanitarian crisis.
