Residents of AlHusainiya Denounce Poor Sewerage with Advent of Winter

Civilians taking shelter in Syria’s AlHusainiya Camp for Palestinian refugees, in Rif Dimashq, have voiced deep concern over the health hazards inflicted by the trash mounds piled up across residential alleyways and the standing wastewater flooding the main access roads.

The residents said wastewater has resulted in bed smells and the spread of life-threatening infections and stray dogs. Children continue to face difficulties trying to reach their schools. Scores of children sustained bruises while other caught skin diseases.

Photos circulated on social media network Facebook show standing wastewater swamping the camp from all corners.

Civilians have appealed to the concerned authorities to take immediate action in order to clear garbage and remove standing wastewater.

All the way through the ten-year Syrian conflict, Palestinians taking refuge in AlHusainiya camp have been grappling with dire conditions. High unemployment rates and the absence of relief assistance by UNRWA and other humanitarian institutions have made survival quite difficult in the area.
