Waste Water Floods Syria’s Khan Dannun Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Residents of Khan Dannun Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Rif Dimashq, continue to set off alarm bells over the sanitation crisis rocking the area.

The displaced families warned of the life-threatening diseases wrought by poisonous rodents and unpleasant smells stemming from contaminated sewage.

Pictures circulated on Facebook show floods of waste water swamping Khan Dannun’s residential alleyways and thoroughfares.

The families called on the concerned authorities and relief institutions, namely UNRWA, to make urgent steps in order to rinse out waste water and enhance hygiene in the area.

The residents lashed out at the local municipality for turning blind eyes to their appeals to enhance infrastructure and basic services. Municipal staff reportedly told them that there is nothing they can do after the water-rinsing missile had gone out of operation.

Living conditions in Khan Dannun have sharply deteriorated due to the lack of financial resources and high unemployment rates wrought by the raging warfare. A transportation crisis has added bad to worse.

Upon more than once occasion, civilians have railed against the mounds of trash and debris piled up in civilian neighborhoods and around the main access roads to the camp, resulting in bed smells and the spread of life-threatening diseases and rodents.
