Clean water is a basic necessity, but in Gaza it is incredibly difficult to get. People are forced to drink dirty, salty water, which can make them ill. For orphans, the elderly and the sick, the diseases caused by dirty water can be life-threatening.

Severe water shortages are rife, and the situation is only worsening.
Some households only receive a trickle of water every couple of days; families are rationing their water or paying a hugely inflated price to have access to extra provisions - countless people don't have the means to do so, and are forced to use salty, diseased water.
For those who rely on agriculture, there isn't enough water to keep their crops and animals healthy; plants die and milk yields drop, putting livelihoods at risk. Poor sewage infrastructure further compounds the problems, and with high temperatures, food shortages and limited access to medical care, the lack of water can be life threatening, especially to the most vulnerable.
You can help the people of Palestine by donating now to provide clean, safe water.
By supporting a Gaza Water Tanker, you can provide safe water to the people who need it the most.
Donate now to deliver clean water directly to schools, orphanages and hospitals. Our tanker also provides water to mosques and community water tanks, so that people can collect clean water for washing, cooking and cleaning.
