Water-Borne Intoxications Reported in AlHusainiya Camp

A number of water-borne intoxication cases have been reported in AlHusainiya Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Rif Dimashq, due to contaminated tank water.

Private water tanks have been filled from contaminated maholes in Khirbet AlWard, in Rif Dimashq.

The Health Directorate in Rif Dimashq announced the closure of the manhole after taking it took samples of the water and found out it was contaminated. According to the directorate, the cases infected with water contamination have reached 1,200 in Masaken Najha, Khirbet Al-Ward and Police housing in Rif Dimashq.

Over recent years, the United Nations expressed concerns that the lack of water could lead to waterborne diseases, particularly among children, and to another financial strain on the families’ shoulders.

The UN has also raised alarm bells over the serious upshots of the water crisis on millions of children in Syria, who have been at high risk of disease due to contaminated tank water.

As the Syria crisis enters its eleventh year, Palestinian refugees continue to bear the brunt of a conflict marked by unparalleled suffering, displacement, shelling, and disregard for human life. The swift hike in prices and rental fees, along with the lack of humanitarian assistance, have made the situation unbearable for Palestinian refugees.
