“We teach them to adopt better practices, conserve water and reuse greywater, and make the most of the amount of water they currently have. ” – Safia, Awareness Officer
The objective is to raise awareness of the fact that Jordan has a limited supply in renewable and affordable water, and to match water use habits at home with the country’s water shortage.
Action Against Hunger is one of the main contributors to access to water, sanitation and hygiene in the Azraq refugee camp. In this desert area, everything had to be created: tanks, water networks, water points, showers, latrines. All these facilities are necessary for life and health, but also for the dignity and daily tasks of the more than 35,000 Syrians living there.
Several years later, the main mission is now to ensure the sustainability of these essential services through the management of the operation and maintenance of the sanitary blocks, the organization of awareness sessions on the theme of water.
In total, we trained more than 430 women volunteers who now volunteer to relay awareness messages to their communities.
“We sit down together to discuss water conservation, hygiene measures, handwashing… It is important in a camp because we are in an environment conducive to the spread of disease, so we must protect ourselves. ” – Shadia, camp resident. Our teams also work in UNICEF centres to raise awareness among children on these issues.
Unfortunately, the water, sanitation and hygiene sector faces a lack of funding, increasing each year, making it difficult to maintain the minimum provision of water, sanitation and hygiene services both in the camp and in the host communities.
